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 »
Writer Corrie ten Boom said of the incident that disrupted the world premiere of this movie: "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 movie, 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 »

A touching Holocaust drama from the imprisoned Christian perspective.
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.
