A true story of love and devotion. A family does what is right, and good and most of them pay with their lives. The world had gone mad after Satan's plans; but the Ten Boom family were Christlike. I have seen this move many times. I am touched by the ten Boom family love for the hurting and needy. True examples of what Jesus would do. Get this movie, you will not be sorry. I was very moved by this film. I've read the book and was moved by it as well. Because the story is true and this family did exist and their faith was that strong, this movie does not seem trite in the least.
The family paid a very high price for what they believed, which is that God's Law is above human law in all situations in all circumstances This is the true story of the heroic Ten Boom family who, during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands. This is their story, as told from the perspective of the sole survivor, Corrie Ten Boom. The Ten Booms were devoutly Christian and lived a simple life, working in their watch shop that had been in their family for over a hundred years.
When the Nazis occupied Holland, they were appalled by the treatment of their fellow Jewish citizens at the hands of the Nazis. Initially, the seventy year old patriarch of the family, played to perfection by Arthur O'Connell, took to wearing a Jewish star himself in sympathy with their oppressed Jewish friends. As time went on, members of this heroic family began working with an underground, partisan group. When it became clear that Jews were being targeted for death and deportation, however, the family also began to hide terrified Jews in their home, after constructing a false wall in one of their bedrooms, thereby creating a secret room.
Eventually denounced by someone to the Nazis, they are arrested in their home which is then torn apart by the Gestapo, in their search for the Jews they believe to be hiding there. At the time of their arrest, the Ten Boom home was filled to capacity with Jews in hiding. So well concealed was the hidden room that had been created by the erection of the false wall, that these poor, terrified Jews managed to escape detection.
The five Ten Booms, however, did not fare so well and were sent to the notorious Ravensbruck death camp, where Corrie and her sister, Betsie, managed to stay together. It is here that they learn the true depths of man's inhumanity to man, and Corrie's Christian faith is sorely tested.
Betsie, affectingly played by the superb Julie Harris, does not survive the rigors and deprivations of Ravensbruck and dies. Within two weeks of her beloved sister's death, Corrie is miraculously released from Ravensbruck. It is years later that she learns that her release was a result of clerical error and that shortly after her release, middle-aged women, such as she, were systemically being put to death.
Corrie was the only member of the Ten Boom family to survive the concentration camp experience. She told their story in a book upon which the movie is based. At the end of the film, the real Corrie Ten Boom, in her eighties at the time of the filming, appears and, in a profoundly moving way, tells why she told the story of her family.
She is a stark reminder of the innate goodness to be found in humanity and is a strong counterpoint to the cruelty of the Nazi regime. I first saw this movie when it was first released in the mid nineteen seventies. It was as moving then, as it is now, twenty five years later. The themes which it touches upon are timeless. This superbly made film with its haunting musical score is peppered with award caliber performances. It is simply a great movie This is a wonderful movie It is not widely known that many and diverse people were the victims of Nazi horrors.
This film focuses upon a family of Christians who helped their Jewish neighbors escape and are themselves imprisoned. I had never heard of this movie before and thank God that I purchased it. My whole family watched it and were very moved by the story. I recommend it to everyone of faith.
The ten Boom's were able to hide, move, and save scores of Jews until one of their "friends" turned them in. Corrie and her sister Betsie both in their 50's were imprisoned in Scheveningen Prison until being transfered to Ravensbruck Concentration Camp. Their 84 yr old father, brother, nephew and other sister were all arrested at the same time.
The book is an absolute must read, as it is able to go into much more detail than the movie. The Hiding Place is a very good adaptation of the book about Corrie Ten Boom's family's treatment at the hands of the Hitler regime. It is heartbreaking and inspirational.
The acting is exceptional. Be sure to have a hanky handy.
For their help, all but Corrie found death in a concentration camp. I'm in awe at Corrie's honesty in her weakness, but more in the faith in both Corrie and her sister,Betsy, that sustained them through atrocities I can only imagine The Epic Journey Write a customer review. I wish everyone who had to go through anything traumatic or horrific could read this book.
