Did You Know?


Corrie Ten Boom said of the incident that disrupted the world premiere of this film: "People asked me tonight, 'What did you feel about this bomb [a tear-gas canister] that was falling?' I was touched. I was sad. Do you know why? Not only because there was in some way disappointment for people who had hoped to see the film but because on that bomb was the Hakenkreuz, the swastika. What we have to do is love these people who hate us - love them, pray for them. These people are wounded people who have hate in their hearts. They need forgiveness. They need the Lord. . . . That is the answer we must give." See more »

Corrie Ten Boom: Years later it was learned my release came through a clerical error, what some might call a mistake. Not long after I was set free, women my age were put to death. Yes, I am Corrie Ten Boom, in my 80's now. Some questions remain but they are not to be feared. Our Heavenly Father holds all things in His hands, even our questions. As for myself in the years since Ravensbruck, the Lord has sent me to some 60 countries and I have taught to anyone who would listen, no pit is so deep that He is not ...

Moving and poignant movie-making as an art form
22 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Hiding Place is a story of a Christian family that risks life and liberty to help Jews who are becoming increasingly oppressed.

This is movie-making as an art form. The directing, camera work, and script are superb. But in the end the enduring quality of this movie is brought out by the performances. Julie Harris is a legend and puts on a clinic in this picture. Newcomer Ms. Clift never did anything before or since but she did this film with great heart and dignity. Eileen Heckert and Arthur O'Connell are superb. In short, the performances are outstanding. It is film making at its best. This is a moving and important film. Don't miss it.
