Summary

Summary

Timeless Christian titles, handsomely bound, at a tremendous value!

An amazing story of faith amidst the horrors of the Holocaust, The Hiding Place has a richly-deserved place among the "Christian classics."

In this autobiographical account, Corrie ten Boom tells of her family's attempt to save Dutch Jews from a Nazi roundup - until their efforts were discovered and the entire family sent to a concentration camp. Her father and sister would die in captivity, but Corrie would survive to write, preach, and personally share the story of God's love and forgiveness - even to her former Nazi captors!

Now in a deluxe collector's edition, this unabridged classic will thrill readers of all ages.


Author Notes

Corrie ten Boom was a writer and historian. She was born in the Netherlands in 1892. In February of 1944, an informer turned the ten Boom family in to the Gestapo for hiding Jews in their watch and clock shop. Six family members and 30 friends were arrested. Casper, Betsie, and Christiaan ten Boom died as prisoners. Because of a clerical error, Corrie Ten Boom was released, one week before all the women her age were killed.

ten Boom went on to tell her message of survival for the next 32 years in countries throughout the world. Her story became both a book and a movie titled The Hiding Place.

Ten Boom died on April 15, 1983.
