The True Story of a Real-Life Hero
It's World War II. Darkness has fallen over Europe as the Nazis spread hatred, fear and war across the globe. But on a quiet city corner in the Netherlands, one woman fights against the darkness.
In her quiet watchmaking shop, she and her family risk their lives to hide Jews, and others hunted by the Nazis, in a secret room, a "hiding place" that they built in the old building.
One day, however, Corrie and her family are betrayed. They're captured and sent to the notorious Nazi concentration camps to die. Yet even in that darkest of places, Corrie still fights.
This is her story--and the story of how faith, hope and love ultimately triumphed over unthinkable evil.
Such an engaging and inspiring story
Our family thoroughly enjoyed this well-written account of a woman's plunge into some of the darkest times in modern history. Though the realities of Corrie's story are filled with sadness and loss, her testimony of hope and forgiveness is what stood out to us as a family! We read this with our younger children as well and the tasteful account in this Young Reader's Edition was perfect - a must read for all!
A Special Edition for Young People
Here's a children's edition of The Hiding Place that takes place in Holland and centers around the Ten Boom family who owned a watch shop in Haarlem. As the story begins, the Ten Boom Watch Shop is celebrating its 100th birthday party in 1937. On that day Corrie, Betsie, and Father ten Boom welcome friends and family who lavish flowers, food, and congratulations onto the watch shop family. Everyone especially honors Father ten Boom who was affectionately called "Haarlem's Grand Old Man."
On that morning, as always, at 8:30AM sharp Father ten Boom gathered Corrie, Betsie, and his workers around the oval table to read the Bible and pray before beginning their day. Cristoffels, the clockmender, who was never tardy and never dressed up, arrived a bit late resplendent in a new suit.
Children who attended loved being near Father ten Boom either in his lap or on the floor. As Corrie wrote, they were especially attracted to father for "he ticked." For inside Casper's numerous coat pockets were ticking watches he was adjusting and fixing.

The Hiding Place
I loved this almost more than the original by Corrie Ten Boom. It perfectly trims the words so that a person from twelve and up can understand the extent of the Ten Boom family sacrifice and commitment to Jesus during trying times. We may be asked to endure such trials ourselves, and it is a good idea to prepare children to consider the cost of discipleship. It's also a good place to start for adults with time pressures.
Wonderful resource for my 10 yr old granddaughter to learn historical truth!
