The Hiding Place: The Triumphant True Story of Corrie Ten Boom

At one time Corrie ten Boom would have laughed at the idea that there would ever be a story to tell. For the first fifty years of her life nothing at all out of the ordinary had ever happened to her. She was an old-maid watchmaker living contentedly with her spinster sister and their elderly father in the tiny Dutch house over their shop. Their uneventful days, as regulate At one time Corrie ten Boom would have laughed at the idea that there would ever be a story to tell. For the first fifty ...

The Hiding Place: The Triumphant True Story of Corrie Ten Boom Reviews

    Jul 22, 2010

    When I was adding every book I could remember ever reading to my Goodreads shelves, I automatically slapped three-star ratings on all the nonfiction books (unless I'd disliked them, or they were specially influential for me) without thinking much about it; I'm more apt to reserve four ...

    Every human being should be required to read this book. I guarantee it will change forever the way you look at life. The memoir is a true account of Corrie Ten Boom's experiences in German-occupied Holland during WWII (and afterward in prisons and concentration camps). The most ama...

    Most people have started 2018 with parties and fireworks. I've started it by finishing a five star book! I've read The Hiding Place a few times before but not in recent years. With so many Christian friends on Goodreads, it is the book that I see most often on people's 'favourite' s...

    If you consider reading this book, be warned. When John and Elizabeth Sherrill wrote the memoir of Corrie ten Boom, they clearly had an agenda. The first half of the book was okay. That's the reason I gave it 2 and not 1 star. The second half, set during the war years and Cor...

    By far one of the best and most inspirational books I've ever read. I've underlined so many parts of this book! I first read this with my first book club almost 10 years ago and read it back in October with my current book club -- still find it absolutely amazing and one I want to read...

    Okay, so the many five stars all around on this here book page were warranted. It?s a heartbreaking, painful read. It?s also full of faith, strength, kindness and perseverance. I?m very glad I gave it a listen. The narrator is terrific and emotive and has the ability to draw you ...

    Two stars. That's the best I can do on a book that came highly recommended and that I read with relish as I had just been to Amsterdam and surrounding areas, visited the Museum of the Resistance and the old Jewish Synagogue referred to in the book. So why two stars? I just didn't b...

    I qualified the recommendation based on age because there are some difficult situations I think, for younger people. I have read many, many holocaust books, and this is by far my favorite. I wept and wept, not just for the suffering she endured, but mostly for the way in which she and ...

    I have read this book before many years ago., but reading about it here on Goodreads reminded me how much I had been absorbed and overwhelmed by the courage and utter dedication of this young woman (the author) and I valued it highly. Although Corrie is a deeply commited Christian you ...

    This is a profound book, and one that will not leave you unmoved. I was even inspired to write a poem before I finished reading it (it does contain a few spoilers for those who don't know Corrie's story): Victory Song by Melissa M. May 16, 2010 Golden glimpses of the sun, Bits...

    This book touched me in a way that few books do. It made me want to work to become a better person. I was definitely in awe of the unwavering and deeply held faith of this inspiring Dutch Christian family before, during and after WWII. They assisted in the Dutch underground movement he...

    What makes this particular book different from other (better) stories about the Holocaust is that it's from the perspective of a Christian woman who was interned. While it's extremely important for us not to forget that one group of people was specifically targeted (Jews) it's also imp...

    This is the story of Corrie ten Boom, a self-described "spinster" watchmaker who lived with her father and sister and was pushing fifty when she became part of the Dutch Resistance helping to hide Jews from the Nazis. Eventually betrayed, she wound up in a Gestapo prison for a few mont...

    The Hiding Place is a story about how the depths of faith and spirituality can get a person through even the darkest nightmare. Corrie ten Boom and her family led the Dutch Underground during the Nazi occupation of Holland, aiding and hiding Jewish people in a secret room in their home...

    If you have not read the book, it is the true account of a Dutch woman in her 50s who sets up an underground Jewish haven during the Nazi rule over Holland. I love reading about the Holocaust, but this was the first time I could sense such a chasm between a sweet, elderly, epitome-of-C...

    **It should be mentioned that this audio version is a retelling of Corrie Ten Boom's memoir, for a modern day audience. Fantastic! Inspirational. I listened to this on audio book in one sitting....I was mesmerised, I couldn't tear myself away from it...I didn't want to. What an a...

    "And so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world's healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself." This book breaks your heart in different ways - breaks your he...

    The Hiding Place is one of my favorite books. Corrie ten Boom was 48 years old when Hitler invaded her hometown in Holland. She had spent her life caring for the family home and working in her father?s watch shop. But at 50 years of age, she became one of the leaders in the under...

    I received this audiobook from www.audiobooksync.com a while ago, but I was hesitant to read it because I am not a religious person. I really shouldn't have though because this is a fantastic true story of humanity and finding the best out of a truly harrowing situation. What a story ...

    The Hiding Place is, next to The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, one of the best and most inspirational true stories I've ever read about finding the courage and resilience to outsmart the evils of Nazism in one of humanity's darkest hours. Corrie was a strong woman and this book ...

    Second Reading - September 2016 First Reading - August 2015 In a genre that really tests our limits to endure the dehumanization and suffering of others, this text stands out as entirely different. WWII Holocaust literature is critically important to the story of Western Civilizati...

    I have read this book twice. My daughter Emily has read it at least four times. One day when she was about 14 I asked her why she loved this book so much. She said, "I want a life just like Corrie Ten Boom." I said in a searching surprised voice, "You want to be sent to a concentration...

    Wow!! Oh wow!! What can I say! This book was emaculent! This was by far the most moving book I've ever read! I'm partially embarrassed to say that I cried all through this book; for I never cry at books. However this one continually brought tears to my eyes and a pain in my heart. This...

    Where to begin when it comes to "The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom? I sit here at a loss for words because I know that nothing I can say will begin to display the emotions and thoughts swirling around in my mind. Ms. Boom's story touched a piece of me so deeply, I'm afraid that I wi...

    What a fabulous book! This is the kind of book that changes the way that you see the world. It's given me so many things to think about. Corrie and several members of her family are imprisoned in several different Nazi camps throughout the end of WWII for helping run the "undergroun...

    In an abundance of Holocaust literature, (and media in general) this book takes a step forward and sets itself apart from the rest. Corrie ten Boom narrates the story of WWII Holland. How the Dutch thought the war wouldn't come to them, but how quickly it came anyway and how the occ...

    What a fabulous book! This is the kind of book that changes the way that you see the world. It's given me so many things to think about. Corrie and several members of her family are imprisoned in several different Nazi camps throughout the end of WWII for helping run the "undergroun...

    In an abundance of Holocaust literature, (and media in general) this book takes a step forward and sets itself apart from the rest. Corrie ten Boom narrates the story of WWII Holland. How the Dutch thought the war wouldn't come to them, but how quickly it came anyway and how the occ...

    This book is...how do you say it? If not life-changing, it at least affects your vision, the way you see things, for ever! I was so moved by the sweetness of each story, the love of each family member, the courage of so many. It certainly brought perspective to my own life. I also admi...

    Every human being should be required to read this book. I guarantee it will change forever the way you look at life. The memoir is a true account of Corrie Ten Boom's experiences in German-occupied Holland during WWII (and afterward in prisons and concentration camps). The most ama...

    Most people have started 2018 with parties and fireworks. I've started it by finishing a five star book! I've read The Hiding Place a few times before but not in recent years. With so many Christian friends on Goodreads, it is the book that I see most often on people's 'favourite' s...

    If you consider reading this book, be warned. When John and Elizabeth Sherrill wrote the memoir of Corrie ten Boom, they clearly had an agenda. The first half of the book was okay. That's the reason I gave it 2 and not 1 star. The second half, set during the war years and Cor...

    By far one of the best and most inspirational books I've ever read. I've underlined so many parts of this book! I first read this with my first book club almost 10 years ago and read it back in October with my current book club -- still find it absolutely amazing and one I want to read...

    Okay, so the many five stars all around on this here book page were warranted. It?s a heartbreaking, painful read. It?s also full of faith, strength, kindness and perseverance. I?m very glad I gave it a listen. The narrator is terrific and emotive and has the ability to draw you ...

    Two stars. That's the best I can do on a book that came highly recommended and that I read with relish as I had just been to Amsterdam and surrounding areas, visited the Museum of the Resistance and the old Jewish Synagogue referred to in the book. So why two stars? I just didn't b...

    I qualified the recommendation based on age because there are some difficult situations I think, for younger people. I have read many, many holocaust books, and this is by far my favorite. I wept and wept, not just for the suffering she endured, but mostly for the way in which she and ...

    I have read this book before many years ago., but reading about it here on Goodreads reminded me how much I had been absorbed and overwhelmed by the courage and utter dedication of this young woman (the author) and I valued it highly. Although Corrie is a deeply commited Christian you ...

    This is a profound book, and one that will not leave you unmoved. I was even inspired to write a poem before I finished reading it (it does contain a few spoilers for those who don't know Corrie's story): Victory Song by Melissa M. May 16, 2010 Golden glimpses of the sun, Bits...

    This book touched me in a way that few books do. It made me want to work to become a better person. I was definitely in awe of the unwavering and deeply held faith of this inspiring Dutch Christian family before, during and after WWII. They assisted in the Dutch underground movement he...

    What makes this particular book different from other (better) stories about the Holocaust is that it's from the perspective of a Christian woman who was interned. While it's extremely important for us not to forget that one group of people was specifically targeted (Jews) it's also imp...

    This is the story of Corrie ten Boom, a self-described "spinster" watchmaker who lived with her father and sister and was pushing fifty when she became part of the Dutch Resistance helping to hide Jews from the Nazis. Eventually betrayed, she wound up in a Gestapo prison for a few mont...

    The Hiding Place is a story about how the depths of faith and spirituality can get a person through even the darkest nightmare. Corrie ten Boom and her family led the Dutch Underground during the Nazi occupation of Holland, aiding and hiding Jewish people in a secret room in their home...

    If you have not read the book, it is the true account of a Dutch woman in her 50s who sets up an underground Jewish haven during the Nazi rule over Holland. I love reading about the Holocaust, but this was the first time I could sense such a chasm between a sweet, elderly, epitome-of-C...

    **It should be mentioned that this audio version is a retelling of Corrie Ten Boom's memoir, for a modern day audience. Fantastic! Inspirational. I listened to this on audio book in one sitting....I was mesmerised, I couldn't tear myself away from it...I didn't want to. What an a...

    "And so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world's healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself." This book breaks your heart in different ways - breaks your he...

    The Hiding Place is one of my favorite books. Corrie ten Boom was 48 years old when Hitler invaded her hometown in Holland. She had spent her life caring for the family home and working in her father?s watch shop. But at 50 years of age, she became one of the leaders in the under...

    I received this audiobook from www.audiobooksync.com a while ago, but I was hesitant to read it because I am not a religious person. I really shouldn't have though because this is a fantastic true story of humanity and finding the best out of a truly harrowing situation. What a story ...

    The Hiding Place is, next to The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, one of the best and most inspirational true stories I've ever read about finding the courage and resilience to outsmart the evils of Nazism in one of humanity's darkest hours. Corrie was a strong woman and this book ...

    I have read this book twice. My daughter Emily has read it at least four times. One day when she was about 14 I asked her why she loved this book so much. She said, "I want a life just like Corrie Ten Boom." I said in a searching surprised voice, "You want to be sent to a concentration...

    Wow!! Oh wow!! What can I say! This book was emaculent! This was by far the most moving book I've ever read! I'm partially embarrassed to say that I cried all through this book; for I never cry at books. However this one continually brought tears to my eyes and a pain in my heart. This...

    Where to begin when it comes to "The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom? I sit here at a loss for words because I know that nothing I can say will begin to display the emotions and thoughts swirling around in my mind. Ms. Boom's story touched a piece of me so deeply, I'm afraid that I wi...

    What a fabulous book! This is the kind of book that changes the way that you see the world. It's given me so many things to think about. Corrie and several members of her family are imprisoned in several different Nazi camps throughout the end of WWII for helping run the "undergroun...

    In an abundance of Holocaust literature, (and media in general) this book takes a step forward and sets itself apart from the rest. Corrie ten Boom narrates the story of WWII Holland. How the Dutch thought the war wouldn't come to them, but how quickly it came anyway and how the occ...

    This book is...how do you say it? If not life-changing, it at least affects your vision, the way you see things, for ever! I was so moved by the sweetness of each story, the love of each family member, the courage of so many. It certainly brought perspective to my own life. I also admi...

    At the same time and in the same town that Anne Frank and her family were in hiding in the attic, Corrie Ten Boom and her family were hiding Jews and dying in a prison for their actions. In my opinion, Corrie ten Boom was possibly one of the most inspirational and wonderfully uplifting...

    I read this in 2013, but re-read it August 2016 I avoided reading Corrie ten Boom for years thinking I wouldn't like it, but it was the best book I read in 2011. Whether or not you are religious, or if religious, Christian, what she and her family did to help so many Jewish and non-...

    I was first introduced to this book (and saw the movie) in the late 1970s and it left a deep impression. All these years later, I reread the book, this time sharing it aloud with my 16 year old daughter. I'm bumping it into my "top dozen" shelf because I think it is profound in its sim...

    When I was adding every book I could remember ever reading to my Goodreads shelves, I automatically slapped three-star ratings on all the nonfiction books (unless I'd disliked them, or they were specially influential for me) without thinking much about it; I'm more apt to reserve four ...

    Every human being should be required to read this book. I guarantee it will change forever the way you look at life. The memoir is a true account of Corrie Ten Boom's experiences in German-occupied Holland during WWII (and afterward in prisons and concentration camps). The most ama...

    Most people have started 2018 with parties and fireworks. I've started it by finishing a five star book! I've read The Hiding Place a few times before but not in recent years. With so many Christian friends on Goodreads, it is the book that I see most often on people's 'favourite' s...

    If you consider reading this book, be warned. When John and Elizabeth Sherrill wrote the memoir of Corrie ten Boom, they clearly had an agenda. The first half of the book was okay. That's the reason I gave it 2 and not 1 star. The second half, set during the war years and Cor...

    By far one of the best and most inspirational books I've ever read. I've underlined so many parts of this book! I first read this with my first book club almost 10 years ago and read it back in October with my current book club -- still find it absolutely amazing and one I want to read...

    Okay, so the many five stars all around on this here book page were warranted. It?s a heartbreaking, painful read. It?s also full of faith, strength, kindness and perseverance. I?m very glad I gave it a listen. The narrator is terrific and emotive and has the ability to draw you ...

    Two stars. That's the best I can do on a book that came highly recommended and that I read with relish as I had just been to Amsterdam and surrounding areas, visited the Museum of the Resistance and the old Jewish Synagogue referred to in the book. So why two stars? I just didn't b...

    I qualified the recommendation based on age because there are some difficult situations I think, for younger people. I have read many, many holocaust books, and this is by far my favorite. I wept and wept, not just for the suffering she endured, but mostly for the way in which she and ...

    I have read this book before many years ago., but reading about it here on Goodreads reminded me how much I had been absorbed and overwhelmed by the courage and utter dedication of this young woman (the author) and I valued it highly. Although Corrie is a deeply commited Christian you ...

    This is a profound book, and one that will not leave you unmoved. I was even inspired to write a poem before I finished reading it (it does contain a few spoilers for those who don't know Corrie's story): Victory Song by Melissa M. May 16, 2010 Golden glimpses of the sun, Bits...

    This book touched me in a way that few books do. It made me want to work to become a better person. I was definitely in awe of the unwavering and deeply held faith of this inspiring Dutch Christian family before, during and after WWII. They assisted in the Dutch underground movement he...

    This is the story of Corrie ten Boom, a self-described "spinster" watchmaker who lived with her father and sister and was pushing fifty when she became part of the Dutch Resistance helping to hide Jews from the Nazis. Eventually betrayed, she wound up in a Gestapo prison for a few mont...

    The Hiding Place is a story about how the depths of faith and spirituality can get a person through even the darkest nightmare. Corrie ten Boom and her family led the Dutch Underground during the Nazi occupation of Holland, aiding and hiding Jewish people in a secret room in their home...

    If you have not read the book, it is the true account of a Dutch woman in her 50s who sets up an underground Jewish haven during the Nazi rule over Holland. I love reading about the Holocaust, but this was the first time I could sense such a chasm between a sweet, elderly, epitome-of-C...

    **It should be mentioned that this audio version is a retelling of Corrie Ten Boom's memoir, for a modern day audience. Fantastic! Inspirational. I listened to this on audio book in one sitting....I was mesmerised, I couldn't tear myself away from it...I didn't want to. What an a...

    "And so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world's healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself." This book breaks your heart in different ways - breaks your he...

    The Hiding Place is one of my favorite books. Corrie ten Boom was 48 years old when Hitler invaded her hometown in Holland. She had spent her life caring for the family home and working in her father?s watch shop. But at 50 years of age, she became one of the leaders in the under...

    I received this audiobook from www.audiobooksync.com a while ago, but I was hesitant to read it because I am not a religious person. I really shouldn't have though because this is a fantastic true story of humanity and finding the best out of a truly harrowing situation. What a story ...

    I have read this book twice. My daughter Emily has read it at least four times. One day when she was about 14 I asked her why she loved this book so much. She said, "I want a life just like Corrie Ten Boom." I said in a searching surprised voice, "You want to be sent to a concentration...

    Wow!! Oh wow!! What can I say! This book was emaculent! This was by far the most moving book I've ever read! I'm partially embarrassed to say that I cried all through this book; for I never cry at books. However this one continually brought tears to my eyes and a pain in my heart. This...

    Every human being should be required to read this book. I guarantee it will change forever the way you look at life. The memoir is a true account of Corrie Ten Boom's experiences in German-occupied Holland during WWII (and afterward in prisons and concentration camps). The most ama...

    Most people have started 2018 with parties and fireworks. I've started it by finishing a five star book! I've read The Hiding Place a few times before but not in recent years. With so many Christian friends on Goodreads, it is the book that I see most often on people's 'favourite' s...

    If you consider reading this book, be warned. When John and Elizabeth Sherrill wrote the memoir of Corrie ten Boom, they clearly had an agenda. The first half of the book was okay. That's the reason I gave it 2 and not 1 star. The second half, set during the war years and Cor...

    By far one of the best and most inspirational books I've ever read. I've underlined so many parts of this book! I first read this with my first book club almost 10 years ago and read it back in October with my current book club -- still find it absolutely amazing and one I want to read...

    Okay, so the many five stars all around on this here book page were warranted. It?s a heartbreaking, painful read. It?s also full of faith, strength, kindness and perseverance. I?m very glad I gave it a listen. The narrator is terrific and emotive and has the ability to draw you ...

    Two stars. That's the best I can do on a book that came highly recommended and that I read with relish as I had just been to Amsterdam and surrounding areas, visited the Museum of the Resistance and the old Jewish Synagogue referred to in the book. So why two stars? I just didn't b...

    I qualified the recommendation based on age because there are some difficult situations I think, for younger people. I have read many, many holocaust books, and this is by far my favorite. I wept and wept, not just for the suffering she endured, but mostly for the way in which she and ...

    I have read this book before many years ago., but reading about it here on Goodreads reminded me how much I had been absorbed and overwhelmed by the courage and utter dedication of this young woman (the author) and I valued it highly. Although Corrie is a deeply commited Christian you ...

    This book touched me in a way that few books do. It made me want to work to become a better person. I was definitely in awe of the unwavering and deeply held faith of this inspiring Dutch Christian family before, during and after WWII. They assisted in the Dutch underground movement he...

    What makes this particular book different from other (better) stories about the Holocaust is that it's from the perspective of a Christian woman who was interned. While it's extremely important for us not to forget that one group of people was specifically targeted (Jews) it's also imp...

    This is the story of Corrie ten Boom, a self-described "spinster" watchmaker who lived with her father and sister and was pushing fifty when she became part of the Dutch Resistance helping to hide Jews from the Nazis. Eventually betrayed, she wound up in a Gestapo prison for a few mont...

    The Hiding Place is a story about how the depths of faith and spirituality can get a person through even the darkest nightmare. Corrie ten Boom and her family led the Dutch Underground during the Nazi occupation of Holland, aiding and hiding Jewish people in a secret room in their home...

    If you have not read the book, it is the true account of a Dutch woman in her 50s who sets up an underground Jewish haven during the Nazi rule over Holland. I love reading about the Holocaust, but this was the first time I could sense such a chasm between a sweet, elderly, epitome-of-C...

    **It should be mentioned that this audio version is a retelling of Corrie Ten Boom's memoir, for a modern day audience. Fantastic! Inspirational. I listened to this on audio book in one sitting....I was mesmerised, I couldn't tear myself away from it...I didn't want to. What an a...

    "And so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world's healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself." This book breaks your heart in different ways - breaks your he...

    The Hiding Place is one of my favorite books. Corrie ten Boom was 48 years old when Hitler invaded her hometown in Holland. She had spent her life caring for the family home and working in her father?s watch shop. But at 50 years of age, she became one of the leaders in the under...

    I received this audiobook from www.audiobooksync.com a while ago, but I was hesitant to read it because I am not a religious person. I really shouldn't have though because this is a fantastic true story of humanity and finding the best out of a truly harrowing situation. What a story ...

    Where to begin when it comes to "The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom? I sit here at a loss for words because I know that nothing I can say will begin to display the emotions and thoughts swirling around in my mind. Ms. Boom's story touched a piece of me so deeply, I'm afraid that I wi...

    What a fabulous book! This is the kind of book that changes the way that you see the world. It's given me so many things to think about. Corrie and several members of her family are imprisoned in several different Nazi camps throughout the end of WWII for helping run the "undergroun...

    In an abundance of Holocaust literature, (and media in general) this book takes a step forward and sets itself apart from the rest. Corrie ten Boom narrates the story of WWII Holland. How the Dutch thought the war wouldn't come to them, but how quickly it came anyway and how the occ...

    This book is...how do you say it? If not life-changing, it at least affects your vision, the way you see things, for ever! I was so moved by the sweetness of each story, the love of each family member, the courage of so many. It certainly brought perspective to my own life. I also admi...

    At the same time and in the same town that Anne Frank and her family were in hiding in the attic, Corrie Ten Boom and her family were hiding Jews and dying in a prison for their actions. In my opinion, Corrie ten Boom was possibly one of the most inspirational and wonderfully uplifting...

    I read this in 2013, but re-read it August 2016 I avoided reading Corrie ten Boom for years thinking I wouldn't like it, but it was the best book I read in 2011. Whether or not you are religious, or if religious, Christian, what she and her family did to help so many Jewish and non-...

    If you have not read the book, it is the true account of a Dutch woman in her 50s who sets up an underground Jewish haven during the Nazi rule over Holland. I love reading about the Holocaust, but this was the first time I could sense such a chasm between a sweet, elderly, epitome-of-C...

    The Hiding Place is, next to The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, one of the best and most inspirational true stories I've ever read about finding the courage and resilience to outsmart the evils of Nazism in one of humanity's darkest hours. Corrie was a strong woman and this book ...

    Second Reading - September 2016 First Reading - August 2015 In a genre that really tests our limits to endure the dehumanization and suffering of others, this text stands out as entirely different. WWII Holocaust literature is critically important to the story of Western Civilizati...

    I have read this book twice. My daughter Emily has read it at least four times. One day when she was about 14 I asked her why she loved this book so much. She said, "I want a life just like Corrie Ten Boom." I said in a searching surprised voice, "You want to be sent to a concentration...
