General Description

Corrie ten Boom’s true story of capture and life in a German concentration camp is intense, tragic, and uplifting all at once. With lines and scenes that stick with the reader, The Hiding Place speaks of peace in the midst of chaos, love in the midst of hate, and hope in the midst of oppression. It prompts students to ask hard questions about honesty, surrender, and love, leading them to a deeper and more thoughtful perspective on personal discipline and faith.
