Editorial Reviews

Review

Nadia May does great credit to the writers of this true story....Her emotional control makes the tension and horror of the family s plight more real and hideous....The listener is left with a story of extraordinary humanity, goodness and overwhelming love. --AudioFile

Reader May has the right tone and accent to convey Corrie s middle-aged presentation. The soul searching and questioning that Corrie expresses comes out clearly through the reader. --Kliatt

A story of hope and faith. Its conversational style makes it especially effective in audio. -- Indianapolis Star. Narrator Nadia May provides an authentic and engaging vocal presentation of this fine work. -- Library Journal. --.

From the Publisher

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 book stands so far above the pack that five stars is not a high enough rating.

Of all the books I've ever read, this is the one that has remained in my mind and my heart for many years. Corrie Ten Boom is a real life super-hero. This unforgettable lady survived the horrors of life in a concentration camp and went on to write a book that has reached out and touched hearts and souls around the world. I do not know or care if this book is "well written" because it is what she has to tell you that matters. You will weep as you read this book, you will look at your world with new eyes and you just may find the light of your faith rekindled. If you want a book that touches your very soul and just may change your life, read this one.

Format: Paperback
This is an absolutely extraordinary book. Never have I read a book in which the spiritual beauty of the author so resonated throughout the story. The purity of heart that manifests itself in this inspiring saga of a heroic, Dutch family in Nazi occupied Holland during World War II is stunningly beautiful.

This is the true story of the Ten Boom family who, during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands, upon seeing what was happening to their Jewish neighbors and friends, asked themselves this age old question "If not us,...who; if not now,...when?" They answered it, ultimately at great cost.

The Ten Booms were devoutly Christian and lived a simple life. The patriarch of the family ran a watch shop that had been in his family for a century. Some of the family members, the author among them, worked there, selling and repairing clocks and watches. They also lived in the house in which the shop was located.

When the Nazis occupied their country, the reality of what it meant slowly dawned upon them, as they saw the treatment given to their fellow Dutch citizens of the Jewish faith. Moved by their plight, the author at the age of fifty, together with other members of her family, including their father who was nearly eighty, became active in the Dutch underground.

When it became clear to the Ten Booms that Jews were being targeted for deportation and death, they had a false wall constructed in the author's bedroom, thereby creating a secret room. There, they would hide the terrified Jews who were staying with them, in the event of a Nazi raid upon their home.

Eventually denounced by someone to the Nazis, the Ten Booms were arrested and their home raided and torn apart by the Gestapo, in their search for the Jews they believed to be hiding there.

What I have learned in this book has directly and indirectly been used throughout many years of my life. No other story has affected me like The Hiding Place. It has been such an encouragement; and how blessed I am to know about the ten Boom family and Corrie's testimony! Her books and videos have had a profound impact on me and countless others.

Format: Paperback
The 268 posted book reviews, reflect the Corrie ten Boom's life story. Readers of THE HIDING PLACE express appreciation for a courageous family who risked their very lives hiding Jews and others in need during the Nazi occupation. It is heartening to know that despite the German propaganda and the rampant anti-Semitism in Europe, there were people who were willing to help the persecuted.

The memoir "In My Hands" illustrates Irene Gut Opdyke's compassion and integrity. She was a Christian who had risked her life, multiple times, to rescue Jews. There were some individuals in Holland, Germany, Poland and other countries who had risked their life to save Jewish lives. In my autobiography From A Name to A Number, I describe how a German woman had given me a sandwich every day, for thirty days. If caught she would have been executed; she risked her life for a sixteen year old Jewish boy, not once but thirty times. Her noble act led me to believe that there is no justification to hate each and every German for murdering hundreds of close and distant relatives of mine, as well as millions of others. It would be unjust to slap a noxious label on the entire German nation. Not all Germans had a common moral depravity embedded in their culture. The sharp contrast between the conduct of a nefarious guard who knocked out my teeth, several weeks earlier, and the righteous woman who gave me the sandwiches, both German nationals, is a compelling affirmation that righteous people may be found among the wicked ones. That German lady was the antidote of the venal and incurably violent side of Nazi Germany. She tickled my imagination, my dream of a caring world. She prevents me from stereotyping thinking. The Bible tells us in Genesis 18.

A wonderful story about a Christian woman and her family in Holland, who risked their own lives to help persecuted Jews during the German occupation. Along with her sister Betsie, she was sent to a concentration camp, but instead of this being a book about suffering, it's a book about finding joy in the direst of circumstances, even after losing her sister, and experiencing herself the ravages or malnourishment, humiliation, and torture. I am not religious myself but deeply respect those who genuinely are, and I was struck by the power of this woman's faith.
