Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Every experience God gives us . . . is the perfect preparation for the future only He can see."--Corrie ten Boom

Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil.

Here is the riveting account of how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people. For 35 years millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still. Now The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God's love will overcome, heal, and restore.


"A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of the darkest moments of history."--Philip Yancey, author, The Jesus I Never Knew

"Ten Boom's classic is even more relevant to the present hour than at the time of its writing. We . . . need to be inspired afresh by the courage manifested by her family."--Jack W. Hayford, president, International Foursquare Church; chancellor, The King's College and Seminary

"The Hiding Place is a classic that begs revisiting. Corrie ten Boom lived the deeper life with God. Her gripping story of love in action will challenge and inspire you!"--Joyce Meyer, best-selling author and Bible teacher

About the Author

Corrie Ten Boom (1892-1983) was born in Haarlem, The Netherlands. After being arrested in 1944 for helping Jews escape the Nazi regime, Corrie spent the last year of World War II in various prison camps. After the war, she was invited to share her experiences in over sixty countries and was honored by the state of Israel for her work during the war. Her life story, The Hiding Place, was originally released in 1971. In 1977, she settled in California, where she remained until her death in 1983, on her 91st birthday. John and Elizabeth Sherrill have authored or coauthored numerous best sellers with sales in excess of 50 million, including The Hiding Place, The Cross and the Switchblade, and God's Smuggler. Their ongoing work as roving editors for Guideposts magazine has taken them from their home in Westchester County, New York, to assignments in five countries.

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.

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
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
This classic work touches on so many feelings and thoughts. For me, the most interesting part was the one where she came across the SS man who had been at Ravensbruck (p. 238). Hatred and revenge came to Corrie's heart. She could not bring herself to shake his hand. She realized that she could not forgive him in her own power, and so she prayerfully asked for the Lord's forgiveness to flow through her. At once, her hatred melted away and was replaced by overwhelming love. She realized that the Lord, who commands us to love our enemies, also gives us the means to do this.
