The Hiding Place

NOTE: This Book is for Age Group 9 - 12 years.

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.

    It is the inspiring and true story of Corrie Ten Boom and her family. It is so amazing and their faith is a shining example to everyone. Love love LOVE this book!!!! WWII was terrible, but we can still draw inspirations from people like Corrie.

      To think that children are abused in this day and age as they think - but not as bad as the Jewish children had it. I cannot begin to imagine the pain the children in World War II experienced... ✡️Corrie ten Boom sucks you right into the story and you never want to put it down - no matter of whether it is non-fiction or not!
