One of the world most extraordinary stories of World War II. From the pages of the international best seller, the drama of two ordinary women who became the supreme heroines of the Dutch Resistance. It's thrilling. It's powerful. It's true. See more »
The meaning and relevance of this film's title 'The Hiding Place' is twofold. Its literary origins are derived from the Bible's Psalm 119 : 114 which says: "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word . . . Hold thou me up, and I . . . ". The film and source book's title also literally refers to the Dutch home of the Ten Boom family in Haarlem, Holland which was a safe haven that Jews could hide in during the Nazis invasion of the Netherlands during World War II.

Corrie ten Boom:
All I can say is that the same God you're accusing, came and lived in the midst of this world. He was beaten and He was mocked and He died on a cross and He did it for love, for us.

excellent period piece; an excellent and moving experience
While others might not agree, the religious content of this feature while bordering on the preachy side, was well suited if one is at all familiar with Corrie ten Boom and her other works. The horrors Corrie and her sister Betsy faced in Ravensbruk concentration camp were just barely covered. It's a must watch for those interested in the horrors of the Holocaust. While it is admittedly evangelistic, it is gives an excellent view of what good can come out of sufferring. The cameo at the end of Corrie ten Boom herself in her beloved Beje (the ten Boom name for their watch repair/clockshop/home in Haarlem, The Netherlands) made it for me. An excellent and moving experience.
