Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The inspirational true story of Corrie ten Boom, who, together with her brave sister Betsie and their aging father, housed Jews in a secret room after the Nazis invaded Holland in 1940. When the Gestapo caught wind of the ten Boom's humanitarian efforts, they sent Corrie and Betsie to the Ravensbrook concentration camp. Though sadly Betsy would never make it out alive, Corrie was ultimately released as the result of a clerical error. Subsequently devoting her life to helping other Holocaust survivors, Corrie would recount her harrowing experiences in her best-selling memoir The Hiding Place, published in 1971.
