Kort biografi
Corrie ten Boom was born on 15 April 1892 to a working-class family in Amsterdam, Netherlands, near Haarlem. Named after her mother, Cornelia, but known as Corrie all her life, she was the youngest child of Casper ten Boom, a jeweler and watchmaker. Her father was fascinated by the craft of watchmaking and often became so engrossed in his work that he forgot to charge customers for his services. Corrie had three older siblings: Betsie, Willem, and Nollie. Her three maternal aunts, Tante Bep, Tante Jans, and Tante Anna, lived with the family.

She trained to be a watchmaker herself, and in 1922, she became the first woman to be licensed as a watchmaker in The Netherlands. Over the next decade, in addition to working in her father's shop, she established a youth club for teenage girls, which provided religious instruction and classes in the performing arts, sewing, and handicrafts. She and her family were Calvinist Christians in the Dutch Reformed Church, and their faith inspired them to serve their society, which they did by offering shelter, food and money to those who were in need.



I read this one ages ago… This is the true story of Corrie ten Boom and her family who lived in the Netherlands during the Nazi occupation. She, her sister Betsie, and their elderly father were watchmakers. They lived a quiet life… until the Nazi invasion. The family became part of the Dutch underground and hid Jewish families in a secret room built for that purpose in their home. Corrie, Betsie, and their father were sent to concentration camps. Only Corrie survived. She was released due to a clerical error. Corrie used to say, “There is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still,” which was something Betsie said to her not long before she died in the camp. This is a heartbreaking story, but at the same time, a beautiful story of faith and of God’s grace.

Een heftig en mooi boek met religieuze (en zeer tolerante) inslag.

What a fantastic read. A memoir that gripped me from the very beginning. It moved from her young life and family, through her growing up, her work as a part of the underground movement to help Jews escape the Nazis, her arrest with others in her family, and finally her final transformation at a concentration camp in Germany. It is through her relationship with her sister Betsie that Corrie actually grows still closer to Jesus. I am simply amazed at the story told here. Read this. Share the story that Betsie and Corrie need to tell the world. Love will overcome every evil.… (mer)

I read this a few months ago and took notes but when it came time to make the journal entry, I was in a hard place and just didn't feel up to it. I'm really glad I read this, though. It made me think a lot. Corrie was a beautiful and strong woman who accomplished much with the help of the Father. I'm thankful she put her story down for us all to be inspired!
