Storyline

Corrie and Betsie ten Boom are middle-aged sisters working in their father's watchmaker shop in pre-WWII Holland. Their uneventful lives are disrupted with the coming of the Nazis. Suspected of hiding Jews & caught breaking rationing rules, they are sent to a concentration camp, where their Christian faith keeps them from despair and bitterness. Betsie eventually dies, but Corrie survives, and after the war, must learn to love and forgive her former captors. Written by Mark Hettler <markh@nstl.com>

Trivia

Billy Graham says of Corrie Ten Boom and her book and this film in his autobiography 'Just As I Am': "Corrie is one of the great Christian heroines of the century. We met her in Switzerland, and her story made such an impression on Ruth that she recommended it to writers John and Elizabeth Sherrill. They jumped at it; and the book and film that followed brought home the horror of those days and the triumph of Christ's love in the midst of virulent hatred." See more »

User Reviews

A touching Holocaust drama from the imprisoned Christian perspective.
22 January 2001 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Starring Eileen Heckart (First Wives Club), this story of miracles serves to remind us all that many people, of all religions and types, suffered at the hands of the Nazi's in World War Two. Often overlooked as a Holocaust drama, this film should not be missed. I am not a religious person, yet this movie really touched my heart...just like Schindler's List! Critically acclaimed in 1975, this is the only World Wide Pictures release without a cameo by Billy Graham. It is his company's most theatrical movie, and I really loved it.
