I'm 40 yrs old and have only just "met" this amazingly family. Wow. Let me be faithful, too, Jesus. My kiddos will be reading this for sure. Beautiful. (Just finished The Hiding Place)
Thank you, Corrie and family. What a legacy you had left. You all have shown how to live, love and serve! One day I will make my way with my kids to show them what I have already taught them about this remarkable family. I will take my father as well, who is a watchmaker. The riches and abundance of the love of God is perfectly displayed in your family and all that legacy has been inspiring me and my family to grow and make a difference!
In 1975 I was pregnant with my second child. We saw the movie “The Hiding Place”. And I was so moved by Corrie Ten Boom’s life story. That I told my husband if we have a girl I want to name her after Corrie. I had a beautiful baby girl. And we named her Corrie Elizabeth. She now is a mother of two. And she walks with the Lord. I am so proud of her. She Loves Jesus and He is the Lord of her life.
What a wonderful inspiration of a christian who relied on God alone and was rewarded with a wonderful life. Love her story as her books are my favorite next to my bible.
thank you for the inspiring tour. <3
I hope someday I can visit this museum in person. I love the story of the Ten Boom family. They inspire me to live a better Christian life. Karen Texas, USA
Wow. Just wow. Thank you for the very beautiful tour around Haarlem Town Square and the Ten Booms' house as well. (And it's free also, thank you so much!!!) Totally inspired by the Ten Booms to live out our love for God and others, with our actions, words, and prayers as well.
I am writing one more time to get the spelling right. So happy to be in contact with the Museum and enter in a difficult situation. God is faithful. Amen 💓
Oh I am amazed to be able to Contact you here om this outstanding museum. What a blessing fo mr in a very difficult loving. Amen 💓
I am so amazed the great Love of Christ she had. I wish more people would be more forgiving as the Lord asks. The museum is outstanding I really appreciated this tour. Thank you for your faithfulness
Well Done! Good and Faithful Servant!
I read Corrie's books in the 1970s as a teenager. I was privileged to see "The Hiding Place" at a screening at a local church then. I have since shared the books and the movie with my children. I'm still inspired by the fact that when called to practical application of God's Word, Corrie and her family were faithful. We read the Word and sing the songs, but sometimes events call on us to practice what we have read or sung, and we find out that He is real and true in the time of trouble!! Thank you for posting this museum online!
Humbled beyond words. Inspired by Corrie's story since the early 1980's.
There are no words big enough or good enough to describe the heroism of the ten Boom family. The harm they suffered after doing so much good is unbelievable. It's hard to understand God's plan many times when it seemed the sky was falling as it did in Holland during WWII. God bless the ten Booms who were willing to save Jews at the cost of their own lives. And God bless Corrie for taking the stories of what God did in front of her very eyes while she was being held in a horrific death camp in Germany. If her books and movie do not leave you in awe of her faith in the Lord and her trust in Him, I don't know what it would take. Her stories makes one want to be just like her with THAT kind of trust in God. She teaches (in my opinion) to just step out in faith, in trust and follow Him. And He will show you what He needs.
Inspirational for all.
What a wonderful human being. We should all strive to be one tenth as good as she was. RIP, Corrie.
Incredible. Just. No. Words.
Very Inspirational ❤ Woman!
This family lived a searching life, searching for that most needful thing on this earth below and in heaven above. For that peace with God unto everlasting life. The greatest amount of us is living a peaceful and luxurious life. not feeling that need! The Ten Boom family was at risk of death every hour, minute, second! We naturally think we(Those living at peace) are safe from death, but are situation no safer than theirs, God is almighty, God is not bound to time or place, we don't have to become ill, if it is God's time for us to die we will no matter what we are doing something good or something bad Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
We are truly blessed and inspired by the love and forgiveness that the Ten Boom family has shown through their faithfulness and kindness towards others. We are truly changed by this story and hope it will impact for generations to come. To see the love of our Lord Jesus Christ not just talked about but lived out in such a way, is truly remarkable! Thank you so much for your example, may we be so lucky to show love & kindness with boldness and love from Jesus because only His love can truly change the world! John 3:16
She was a vessel greatly used of God. Another sign that the Jews are a people of God.
I remember reading The Hiding Place when I was very young; sometime in middle school, I believe. I remember being especially impacted by the family's act of bravery in the face of unparalleled evil. How she managed to forgive those who were responsible for the deaths of not only her family members, but of the many who died overall in the Holocaust, is beyond me, and can only come from God. Even though she passed away over a decade before I was born, her story still sticks with me. If I were maybe born earlier, I could've had a chance to meet her. Especially today, the world needs more shining examples like Corrie, with compassion and love for others.
This amazing woman and her family have long been role models for me. I've read all her books and pray that her courage and faith would be passed on to all Christ's followers around the world - especially in times of such great evil and horror. Thank you for the work of this website. It is such a blessing and inspiration.
Corrie came and spoke at my church in Glendora, CA (New Hope Dutch Reformed), sometime I think in the 1980's. She spoke of the faithfulness of God during this horrific time in history she experienced. She gave the example of the embroidered blanket -- God's plan and purpose vs the jumbled mess we often see. Then toward the end of her talk, a man from the back of the room interrupted Corrie and introduced himself as one of the guards from Ravensbruck she was at. He proceeded to walk forward, said he was a Christian, and eventually asked for Corrie's forgiveness. She paused for a long while, almost frozen, she finally reached out her hand, and said, "Yes, I forgive you." I thought this took place for the first time in my church then. However, apparently it took place shortly after her beginning the mission sharing God's faithfulness and forgiveness. I remember being intrigued with her hairstyle, her wisdom, and her graciousness -- lovely lady.
the story of the ten booms was very touching
An inspirational true story with a very large and real God. The entire Ten Boom family were amazing people, and of Jewish heritage and from a family of survivors, I am thankful for those who lived out the message of Christ. I have visited her home with my oldest son and have taught her book in public school. It is now, just re-reading her words, that have I felt renewed faith and hope. Your prayers and message will continue and the words of Betsy will endure.
I like your website!!! 🙂 Bye... Thank for yourattention 🙂
My late mother, also a non-Jewish Christian with a heart for God's people was incarcerated with Corrie and her sister in Ravensbruck. She also forgave her tormentors and she and I were blessed to visit Israel together before she passed on to the arms of the God of Israel. I was blessed to be raised with a love for the Jewish people and am now an active Christian Zionist!
I am thankful for this site an all i learned, i will begin to pray for ISRAEL.an also that Jesus will help you in all that you do.
I am deeply moved by the amazing story of The Hiding Place and the sacrifices made by Corrie and the Ten Boon family on behalf of the Jewish people. How admirable to stand for truth and righteousness, even to the point of death. Their testimony of God's faithfulness and love shining bright even in the midst of deep darkness is so inspiring. Since reading The Hiding Place, I was delighted and amazed to discover this beautiful virtual tour. May her story and the Ten Boon Museum continue to inspire and move us to pray for peace and the love of Jesus to reign here on earth.
Danke dem Herrn f�r die Tenboon-Familie. Sie waren, sind und sein werden ein lebendiges Beispiel f�r die Liebe Christi und ein lebendiges Beispiel - wie die Nachfolge Christi m�glich ist: durch Liebe und Vergebung. Mein Herz wurde dadurch tief ger�hrt und ver�ndert. Ja, es ist wahr: "Alles ist m�glich, dem der es glaubt" Markus 9, 23. Gottes reichen Segen! und Schalom
I am reading the book The Hiding Place now, and am mooved by the story Corrie and her family experienced during World War ���� God make me find this museum . I have to pray for Jewish people to built peace in the world. Thank you .
Blessings for this site. This is an inspiring and hope filled story of God's love. To have the kind of close relationship with The Father ,Son And Holy Spirit is our most prized gift. The ten Booms had that relationship we all desire.
Thank you for all the hard work to all those that took their time to create this web tour of the Ten Boom home and to restore the Ten Boom home as well as telling their incredible life story. And I thank Glenn Beck for showing the Movie on his new network. The Ten Boom Life story touched me closer to home more than I thought and could not stop the tears as I watched the movie. As my Family was also effected by the Occupation.
I love Corrie Ten Boom. I have received one or two books/magazine (type) from my sister-in-law, Linda. What I never told Linda, was my family knew Corrie Ten Boom. She use to visit my fraternal grandparents and their family that came from Imjuden, Holland. I never realized until now how important she was to my grandparents and my father. I do remember her to be very soft spoken, pleasant to be around and a delicious smile. Wish I could go back and spend more time with her instead of being shushed aside and told, this is for adults to talk. Later she would talk to us children. What fun. God Bless her. Thank you all for this site and keeping the Ten Boom Museum alive.
I have seen the movie and read the book multiple times over the years and it never fails to inspire me to want to be more like Jesus.May God use this site to reach a whole new generation unfamiliar with the Ten Boom family and their faith and testimony of forgiveness and love.My prayers are with Israel and the Jewish people world wide.I will be sharing this link. Bless you and this ministry.
Words cannot describe how great our Lord is. He brought Corrie through such great odds to spread the message of His love and hope. Lord we are thankful to You, Your every plan is truly perfect.
What a blessing Corrie and the ten boom family is thank you so much for all your prayers ..
I have read almost all of Corries books and followed her most of my my christian life. I also have a tape called "Gods Logistics are perfect". I do pray for Israel and hope that our country wakes up before it is to late.
What an awesome family that loved God and all people. My desire is to be a Christian in my heart just like the Ten Boom family. A heart like Jesus!
AMAZING BOOK 😀
Wonderful to do the virtual tour having visited the Hiding Place in person during my DTS with YWAM Amsterdam in 1990. Every blessing.
Today is the date of Corries life/passing into the hands of the LORD. I had never even heard about this, before. Thank YOU LORD for bringing me here. Now I will search for the hiding place (the movie). And I commit to continue to pray for Jerusalem, as the LORD has commanded us to do. And I will thank HIM for those who have served HIM in such an inspiring way, by helping HIS chosen nation in and thru HIS incredible love! Thank you for sharing.
I have read The Hiding Place three or four times. I love Corrie and her loving family. Such an inspiration. It made me want to have strong faith like Corrie's family. I hope someday I shall meet them in Heaven. I would love to go to Holland and see the Watch Shop and home. Thank you for such a great tour!! God Bless.
I stumbled upon this web site as I was researching to write a play about Corrie ten Boom. Thank you!
Just finished reading "The Watchmaker's Daughter" by Jean Watson with my 9 year old daughter and have spent some time looking at certain elements of what Corrie and her family experienced before, during and after WWII. What a testimony to this young generation. Thank you for keeping the Ten Boom story alive and their message of peace, forgiveness and hope in Jesus at the forefront!
May God bless the people of Israel and may they learn to know Jesus as their personal saviour. May there be peace in Jerusalem. Amen
How its amazing that love could still flow in that terrible place. God is so amazing !!
Wonderful tour, and moving story of this family and all they did for the Lord Jesus. I hope that given the same circumstances I would have the fortitude to do the same. I have shared your web site with my Face Book and Twitter contacts. I hope many more will come, learn, and or be reminded. May the Lord bless your ministry here.
