Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Corrie Ten Boom stood naked with her older sister Betsie, watching a concentration camp matron beating a prisoner."Oh, the poor woman," Corrie cried."Yes. May God forgive her," Betsie replied. And, once again, Corrie realized that it was for the souls of the brutal Nazi guards that her sister prayed.
Here is a book aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian spinster whose life was transformed by it. A story of Christ's message and the courageous woman who listened and lived to pass it along -- with joy and triumph! --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This book was excellent, I thought, in giving a great insight to those that tried to help out their neighbors in escaping from the Germans. This family continued even thought there was great risk. They paid with their lives and still held strong that they were doing the right thing. It gave a different feel for what happened to all people involved in the Holocaust. It helped me to understand a different side to all the hatred and gore that happened then.

I've known some things about Corrie Ten Boom's story for years. I've even shared with other people the story about getting the ticket before you get on the train (and not before - in other words, we don't get ready for things way beforehand - God will give us the strength to deal with what we need to exactly when we need it). Then I watched the movie - but I hadn't read the book. Til now!
When I read, I use those Post-It arrows to mark favorite passages in books I'm reading. This book has tons of markers sticking out of this book! This story of Corrie and her family during World War II has impacted me greatly. I've been talking about this book to anyone who will listen!
Here are some of my favorite life lessons from The Hiding Place:
Some knowledge is "too heavy" for us to carry. When Corrie was a child, she and her father were on a train ride. She asked a question that had an adult theme, and Corrie's father then asked her to carry his heavy suitcase. When Corrie tried and said it was too heavy, her father said that some knowledge is too heavy for children and that he would carry it for Corrie until she was older and ready to hear it. In the same way, God carries our "too heavy" burdens.
Happiness isn't something that depends on our surroundings, but it's something we make inside ourselves. This is one of Corrie's sister Betsie's statements. Betsie was a real example to Corrie - she always prayed for her enemies and put the best construction on things. Betsie died in the concentration camp at Ravensbruck.
Betsie said, "There are no "ifs" in God's world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety. Oh, Corrie, let us pray that we will always know it.

This story has to be the best story I have ever read. It's the kind of story that grabs you. It was amazing to see how God works in people's lives. When I started reading it, I became interested and couldn't stop reading until I was done.
The story takes place during world War 2, and it is about two wonen named Corrie Ten Boom and Betsie. They were Christian wonen and loved God with all their hearts. At this particular time, Hitleer was persecuting the Jews because he thought they were a pest to the human race.
During World War 2, Corrie took Jews into her house and let them stay there. She had many ways of hiding them from the Nazi guards. She would hide the Jews in the walls whenever the guards came near the house. jAt the risk of her life and her family's lives, would hide them because they felt it was the right thing to do. As the story goes on, she gets caught hiding some Jewish people in her house, and both she and her sister are shipped to a concentration camp. While she was there, she saw many horrors. It was amazing what the guards would do to the jewish people. The Nazis were very cruel to Corrie and her sister, and put them through many hardships. It was only by God's grace that they made it out in good shape. God never left them even through all the terrible times they experienced.

One of the things that makes this book so different from other books is that it is a real story. The story takes place in Haailem, Holland in 1942, the time in which Adolf Hitler was in rule. The Holocaust was a dramatic time for the Jews, as well as for the people involved in helping them, people like Corrie ten Boom, the author of this book, and her family. The ten Boom's were Christian and were not in agreeement with Hitler's rule.They did not neglect Jews when they came to them for help. "If I stand behind, I will opn my door to anyone that knocks for help," Mr. Ten Boom once said. This watchmaker's family was motivated by the growth of discrimination in Europe to become involved. Corrie was forty-five at the time and had an older sister, Betsie. The family business was "Ten Boom Watches," which her father's father had created some one hundred years ago. The two sisters were attached to their father. Later in the story they were all separated and locked up in a prison for helping the Jews in scaping from the Nazis. The ten Boom's took this people into their home and hid them in a secret room. The courrageous family put their lives at risk by doing what they thought was correct. However, their faith toward God was too big to fade away, and that kept them from giving up. Corrie and her sister were together most of the way, but after this immence battle, Corri wrote her amazing story in this book.
The Hiding Place is a fabulous book. Especially for people who love to read real stories. This is a topic which most of us know enough to recognize what sort of things go on in a concentration camp. This gives the book an even stronger impact. Corrie ten Boomis a woman that I admire tremendously after reading this book. I firmly belive this is a great book which, hopefully, everyone can get their hands on and read!
