"...this inspiring true story of Holocaust survivor Corrie Ten Boom (played by Golden Globe-nominated Jeannette Clift) now outshines its own stunning Hollywood premiere. With the WWII Nazi invasion of Holland, the ten Boom family joins the underground resistance to help save persecuted Jewish families. But when they are arrested and imprisoned in concentration camps themselves, they're left with nothing to cling to but their faith."

RETURN to the HIDING PLACE

In spite of the high praise for this file below, we do not recommend it. The story does not hold together - it lacks cohesiveness of its message. Also STRONG CAUTION should be exercise by parents to allow children to watch this movie with its strong thematic material.

THE UNTOLD TRUE STORY

CORRIE TEN BOOM’S SECRET STUDENT ARMY

“INCREDIBLE.” Franklin Graham

“…a remarkable film!” Dove Foundation

“…one of the most exciting, riveting, edge-of-your seat World War II movies EVER MADE.” 4 stars by Moviguide.org

“It is a great piece…powerful. This release is very timely and has modern-day application as anti-Semitism is rearing its head again…” Franklin Graham (Billy Graham Evangelical Association

In WWII Holland, Corrie ten Boom drafted a secret resistance army of untrained university students who navigated a deadly labyrinth of hijackings, rescue missions and underground networks to save and transport over 880 Jewish people in their panicked exodus from death. This trilling, true tale of young people daring to resist one of history’s cruelest tyrants attests that a brave, faithful few can change the tide of history.
