I don't usually like non-fiction, or religious books. In fact, I had to read this as part of a class. But I found myself going through it faster than expected, and in my spare time... regardless of your beliefs, it paints a very powerful portrait of love, loss, and most of all, faith during the Halocaust. Bringing out the best and worst in man... a real tearjerker.
this was a recommendation from a friend after she discovered how much the holocaust intrigues me. I have read dozens of memoirs from survivors of the holocaust, but never one from a woman who helped Jews escape the horror of camps and ghettos. amazing read, and puts a new perspective on WWII. there were good people out there-and some survived to tell about it. this story will bring you through each emotion, have kleenex at your disposal: for the tears of sadness and laughter!
This book is one of those that you cannot put down til finished. Kept my interest! Talks about the men and women that were taken into concentration camps. It is not all gloom and doom. The strength and courage of Corrie Ten Boom and her sister is amazing!!! God is with them through it all. One of the phrases taken from the Bible " Be thankful for all things " . The trials they endure are amazing.
Very moving! An incredible story of the power of faith and good over evil. Everyone should read this book. It is a message of peace and healing.
A very moving account of a Christian woman and her family's journey to help jews during the Holocaust. Rough at times, but very powerful!
