Corrie ten Boom:
Corrie ten Boom has long been honored by
evangelical Christians as an exemplar of Christian faith in action. Arrested by the Nazis
along with the rest of her family for hiding Jews in their Haarlem home during the Holocaust,
she was imprisoned and eventually sent to the Ravensbruck concentration camp along with her
beloved sister, Betsie, who perished there just days before Corrie's own release on December
31, 1944. Inspired by Betsie's example of selfless love and forgiveness amid extreme cruelty
and persecution, Corrie established a post-war home for other camp survivors trying to
recover from the horrors they had escaped. She went on to travel widely as a missionary,
preaching God's forgiveness and the need for reconciliation. Corrie's devout moral principles
were tested when, by chance, she came face to face with one of her former tormentors in 1947.
The following description of that experience is excerpted from her 1971 autobiography, The
Hiding Place, written with the help of John and Elizabeth Sherrill.
