Show Synopsis

After Nazi forces invade Holland, one heroic family—Casper ten Boom and his daughters Corrie and Betsie—risk everything they have, including their lives, to shelter Jews from almost-certain death. They lived above their century-old clock shop in Amsterdam and hid their “forbidden guests” in a tiny secret space located behind a wardrobe in Corrie’s room. Eventually, their home was raided, and they were arrested and sent to concentration camps; but those they sheltered were not discovered in their hiding place. The Ten Booms’ amazing true story of heroism, hope, faith, and love has inspired millions the world over—and it will surely inspire you.
