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

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.
fantastic book! super inspiring to learn about a woman whose faith in God brought her through the most tragic and horrible of circumstance... This book will change your life! "There is no pit that God is not deeper still." (quote from the book, one of my favs!)
