Thrust into a world of spies and espionage, Corrie ten Boom, together with her sister Betsie and her elderly father Casper, heroically hide Jews from the Nazi invadors in their little town in Holland. Betrayed, the family is deported to German concentration camps. Casper and Betsie both die in the camps, following their horrendous suffering, but in 1945 Corrie is released. For the next forty years she travels the world sharing her testimony of forgiveness and the hope found in Jesus Christ in the midst of suffering.
The Book--In 1971 John and Elisabeth Sherrill wrote The Hiding Place, together with Corrie ten Boom. They shared Corrie's memories of actual events that occurred during WWII. Over the next several years Chosen Books sold millions of copies of the book which inspired readers to look beyond the darkest of circumstances and find hope in Jesus Christ.
The Movie--Following the success of the book, in 1975 World Wide Pictures produced the film of The Hiding Place, which they call their “most popular film”. The film bridged the gap between Christian and secular entertainment being nominated for both a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award. Both the book and movie continue in popularity today-- cementing The Hiding Place as a classic.
