In Nazi-occupied Holland, Corrie ten Boom and her family made a modest living by repairing watches, until their Christian faith prompted them to risk everything in order to protect the Jewish people of Haarlem. Joining the Dutch underground, the Ten Booms helped many Jews to find food, shelter, and freedom—only to themselves fall into the hands of the Germans. A gripping work of history and a spiritual classic, Ten Boom's 1971 memoir chronicles how she faced two seemingly insurmountable challenges: to survive in a concentration camp, and to forgive her persecutors.
