I read this book when I was a teenager. It is an extra-
ordinary book about Corrie Ten Boom's forgiving love during WWII. This is a good book for anyone to read; to
learn about people being oppressed, and other details
about WWI.

Corrie ten Boom is the daughter of a Dutch watchmaker during World War II. She and her family risk everything to make a hiding place for the Jews in Nazi invaded Holland and wind up paying the ultimate price. Corrie alone lives to tell the story of survival in the cruel Nazi concentration camps. While not an easy read, The Hiding Place tells a story that we must never forget. I first read The Hiding Place when I was a teen and it changed my life. As a home school mom I required each of my children to read it as well. I make it a point to read it again every year or two. This is a true story of great courage, sacrifice and love in the most horrific of circumstances.

This is a really interesting book that feels like "The Diary of Anne Frank" and some similar stories.

This is my favorite Christian book of all. (and I've read MANY!) I've read it many times and have bought and given away numerous copies. If you haven't read Corrie Ten Boom, you'll want to read many more of her books after this one.

This is a book I have read and shared with many others throughout my life. The lives of Corrie and her family were truly amazing.The level of their faith puts most of us to shame.

Read (or re-read) this wonderful book and cling to the encouragement it will give you.

We need it in this day and age.

One of the best books I have ever read. This is required reading in my house for my children before they leave home. You will walk with Corrie and her sister as they experience both the horrors evil men, and women, can do to each other and the incredible mercy and forgivemenss humankind can also give to one another. An amazing book of survival, faith validated, and forgiveness.

An extraordinary example of Christ's love. The people in this book show a true example of how to love the way Jesus did. Wonderful book. Inspiring and encouraging. Beautiful!

This book was at least as good in 2011 as it was when I read it first in about 1981. These people aren't just good religious people, they are spunky and humorous and human. They face the challenge of opposing the world gone mad under Hitler's regime, and come to grips with worse than life-threatening fears, and succeed brilliantly. It's a delightful peek at 1930's life in Holland, and makes you feel a part of a wonderfully "functional" family. The book also helps you feel the horror of WWII with its tragic destruction of cities, homes and people. It is one of the best books written.

This is a great book about Corrie Ten Boom's experiences during WWII. She helped many Jews until she, along with her sister, was caught and sent to a concentration camp. We can learn much from her example of faith and courage even in the most dire of circumstances! A must read for everyone.

Incredible story. A "must read".

The Hiding Place is a riveting page-turner describing how a middle aged Dutch Watchmaker became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitlers concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evagelists of the twentieth century.

Only Corrie ten Boom survived to tell of how faith triumphed over evil, a story that would touch the hearts of millions.
