Corrie Ten Boom's family sheltered Jews in Holland during the Holocaust.
She subsequently lost her freedom, her dignity, and her beloved sister and father in the Nazi concentration camps. In God’s providence Corrie was released due to a clerical error, just one week before the other women in Ravensbruck her age were executed.
After the Second World War Corrie was invited to speak all over the world, and she traveled the globe telling people about Christ and his love.
She understood that everyone who had received God’s forgiveness had no choice but to show forgiveness to others; and she knew from her own life experience that that wasn’t always easy.
