Out of the evil called the Holocaust arose a witness, a voice that
even the Nazis could not silence, a voice that testified to the
power of God to overcome every wickedness and sorrow.
Corrie ten Boom is that witness and her powerful story recounts
the courage of one Christian family of Dutch watchmakers who
determined to save Jews and resistance workers from the Gestapo
forces that had overrun the Netherlands.
Following the war Corrie began to tell her story of God's
faithfulness and his mercy, even in the darkest and deepest pit.
The same faith that compelled the ten Boom family to stand firm
in the face of evil would continue to shape Corrie's life as she bore
witness to the great power of God's love to forgive, to heal, and to
"A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of
the darkest moments of history."
