Corrie ten Boom & her family harbored several refugees during the Holocaust. Eventually they were arrested by the Germans & sent to various concentration camps. Most of her family was killed & on Christmas day, 1944, Corrie was released – by mistake. Her release was due to a clerical error & just after her release, the other females imprisoned in the camp with her were executed. Corrie ten Boom later went on to write her story in the book, The Hiding Place, which was made into a movie.
Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch evangelical, was arrested and sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp in 1944 for hiding Jews. After the war, she encountered one of the cruelest former camp guards. She said of that moment, "For a long moment we grasped each other's hands, the former guard and the former prisoner. I had never known God's love so intensely as I did then."

Courageous woman of strong belief.
