We read her book "The Hiding Place" in English and at first I didn't really want to read it but as I got further into the more I enjoyed the stories and awaited each chapter. The miracles and the fact it was a true story made it such a glorious book. I will definitely read it again in the future.
I heard Corrie speak in Fullerton, Ca. How precious did JESUS shine.
What a powerful representation of how prayer works.
God of Power and Love
You are a Beautiful Soul, Corrie
my prayers are with all of you always
Taking the tour of the ten Boom house and the Friends of Zion’s Museum in the Heritage Center will complete one’s thoughts and truth regarding the Holocaust and Corrie’s words. The shot of the “Shoe’s” from the Nazi concentration camps really hit my soul.
Apologies for last sentence of my above comment...spell check changed the word “tragedy” to another two words. (Apologies for not catching the exchange before submitting.)
Thankfully, we had fairly good public schools in Nebraska when I was young. And, some teachers were retired College Professors that expected a higher degree of work and were very good teachers. So, we got a degree of information that was of much use in our college programs and following adult education. We read the book, “The Hiding Place,” and watched the movie of the same title. Likewise, we watched a movie of Billy Graham’s organization that opened my ears and heart to the knowledge of needing to be Saved by Jesus Christ for our Salvation. I have Never forgotten the truth of the Nazi’s mass-murdering the Jews and also other people’s. It was not only in Germany, but, also in many other countries. Also, Germany murdered many thousands of German people who were not Jewish. The “Shoes” display in the FOZ museum attests to the great trade guy of the Holocaust.!
I read The Hiding Place when i was a young high school and loved the book; just this week i saw the movie; what a very moving story and a very brave woman with her sister and the whole family...The Love of Jesus is deeper than the ocean! God bless you all
am praying for the State of ISRAEL. God Bless all the people involved in helping this Fellowship.

This is a very dark time in our nation's history and in the history of Western Civilization. Taking the tour of the Ten Boom Museum and listening to the story changed my entire attitude and touched me very deeply. I am and have been familiar with the story of Corrie Ten Boom, read her books and seen the movie, "The Hiding Place", but taking the virtual tour of the Ten Boom Museum with the lovely voice-over of their story reminded me again of God's faithfulness to His children in the face of evil. He will not fail us or leave us to face anything alone, and in the end, we will be with Him forever. That is my comfort and Corrie Ten Boom reminded me of that today by the story of her life and her family's lives.
Corrie, her family, The Hiding Place, and Corrie's testimony has meant so much to my early Christian walk.
I love the Ten Boom family and I read Corrie’sbook often for inspiration.
Praying for Isreal.
What God did through the Ten Boom family is so wonderous and it truly has changed me to have witnessed it through the book "The Hiding Place". The virtual tour on this website is immersive and inspiring. Every corner and every picture brings so much of what Corrie said back to my mind, and it is amazing to see with my own eyes, what I had imagined the Ten Boom home to be like. I learned much more about Corrie's life on the virtual tour and I thank you so much for making it available. May the Lord bless you and your work.
This is simply an amazing place! I can not imagine what it would have been like to be a Jew...hiding in this place of refuge. It was a wonderful tour.
Corrie Ten Boom's story and quotes are very encouraging
my prayers are with all of you always
Loved it! Trump 2020!
I love Corrie, and particularly loved s
I love the VR tour. She helped me get threw life. The tour helped me get facts for my essay I'm doing about her.
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.
