Corrie ten Boom

Corrie ten Boom lived with her aged father and sister in Haarlem, Holland. When the Germans invaded during the 2nd world war and started to systematically persecute the Jewish people, as a family they reached out and provided help and shelter, many Jewish people were rescued and helped. They were betrayed to the gestapo in 1944 and all were sent to the concentration camps, Corrie’s father and sister died there. But Corries story is a story of victory, love stronger than hate and light greater than the deepest darkness.
