The Hiding Place is a 1975 film based on the autobiographical book of the same name by Corrie ten Boom recounting her and her family’s experiences before and during their imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp during the Holocaust in World War II. As the Nazis invaded Holland, Corrie and her family allow Jews to hide in a part of their home that is specially remodeled by members of the Dutch resistance. However, the Nazis eventually discover that Corrie and her family are hiding Jews, and the family and their friends are arrested under the betrayal of a Dutch collaborator. The hidden Jews are never found. Corrie’s father, Casper, dies before he reaches the concentration camp, and Corrie worries that she will never see her home again. The Nazis send Corrie and her sister, Betsie, to the Ravensbruck concentration camp in Germany for hiding Jews in their home. At the concentration camp, Corrie encourages Betsie to remain hopeful that God will rescue them from the brutalities they experience. With little food and constant work, the women suffer constantly, and Corrie’s sister Betsie played by Julie Harris, dies. Ultimately, Corrie, played by Jeanette Clift George, leaves the camp through what is discovered later to be a clerical error. Her life after this ordeal was dedicated to showing that the love of Jesus is greater than the deepest pit into which humankind finds itself. The Hiding Place was directed by James F. Collier. Jeanette Clift George received a Golden Globe nomination for Most Promising Newcomer – Female.
Among the greatest Christian movies of all time is “The Hiding Place,” the incredible, heroic story of Corrie ten Boom and her family, who worked with the underground resistance in Holland against the occupying Nazi army, providing a “hiding place” in their home for fleeing Jews. Ultimately, the Ten Boom family is betrayed and sent to Nazi concentration camps.
Corrie and Betsie ten Boom are middle-aged sisters working in their father’s watchmaker shop in pre-WWII Holland. Their uneventful lives are disrupted with the coming of the Nazis.
