Really advise others too in reading the book and/or watching the movie.....

I have a video of the film. I'd recommend it for sure... it's so..... I cry just about everytime I see it.
I didn't expect to see the name of Corrie ten Boom's book in these forum somehow! :D

I know what you mean, Misako. I've read The Hiding Place at least 10 times! Did you know that there is a little museum of sorts at the "Beje" in old Haarlem? I understand that they've tried to keep the ten Boom's watch shop and home like it was when Corrie and her family were hiding Jews there........right down to "Tante Jans'" rooms (remember her? the strong-willed widowed aunt who took up the entire second floor when she moved in? But, they didn't mind - after all, she was Tante Jans !!)

I have a couple audio cassette tapes of Corrie giving one of her many talks......oh, Misako, what a precious, beautiful person she was! Sounds like you feel the same! We ought to have a subforum just for her and Diet Eman, too!


P.S. Corrie wrote a book several years after "The Hiding Place" titled "In My Father's House" which is about her family before the war......Wonderful!!! If you ever get the chance to read it.........

Dear Deanna,
I've got "In My Father's House" book :D , it's sitting next to Brother Andrew's books.
I know she was a beautiful person despite of all the suffering she went through. She remained loving and humble towards everyone, I was told that by a good friend of mine who is a friend of Brother Andrew. Brother Andrew persoanlly must have said that, because my friend never met C.t.Boom.
I didn't know anything about the museum. I would love to visit it.....the watch shop... what a story... I can't get over the fact how she stayed the way she was after all THAT. I mean she and others went through so much, their suffering is beyond my comprehention.
The book reminds me of a scripture about us going through a fire coming out as a purer gold.
thank you for letting me/us know about museum. I will look into that more. misako

If anyone is interested, may I suggest a brilliant book. It is called survival, and is a collection of Holocaust survivors stories.
It is an emotional read but very interesting.
Foreword by Sir Martin Gilbert.

While on the Operation "Market garden" The Arnhem battle. On the way North we heard that a small concentration camp had been found in the low countries. After 69 years I still recall its name...Something like ..."Breendonk"...????
Any one know of it?

Have a look around this site, Brian:


Looks like it was in Belgium. Nasty little place.
