The Story that Begins Where The Hiding Place Ends Join Corrie on a worldwide trip that could only have been planned by God. It was in a church in Munich that I saw him… One moment I saw the overcoat and the brown hat; the next, a blue uniform and a visored cap with its skull and crossbones. It came back with a rush: The place was Ravensbruck and the man who was making his way forward had been a guard-one of the most cruel guards. Now he was in front of me, hand thrust out. I was face to face with one of my captors and my blood seemed to freeze. ‘Fraulein, will you forgive me?’ Corrie ten Boom lived with her family in Holland for fifty years before the outbreak of World War II. Hiding Jewish refugees led to the family’s arrest and Corrie was imprisoned in a German concentration camp. Released after ten months, she tramped the world with a burning desire to tell others that Jesus is a reality, that He lives, that He is victor.
About the author
It is hard to overestimate the impact of the life of Corrie ten Boom. She and her family risked their lives by hiding Jews in occupied Holland during World War II. Arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Ravensbruck, the notorious Nazi concentration camp, she found for herself the victory that overcomes the world. After being miraculously released, Corrie began an international ministry of writing and speaking. Her extensive traveling to share Christ and counsel the hurting made her a worldwide witness, or, as she put it, a “tramp for the Lord.” Corrie died in 1983, on her 91st birthday.
