In 1940, the Germans invaded the Netherlands, and Corrie ten Boom and her family helped to hide as many Jewish people as possible. They even had a secret room built in her bedroom.

Corrie and her sister were caught by the German army and sent to a concentration camp, where God made sure they always had a Bible to read and plenty of opportunities to share the good news about Jesus.

Corrie’s trust in God gave her the strength to go on until the war ended. From then on, Corrie talked about her life to big crowds, saying, “There’s no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still".

Children will enjoy this beautifully illustrated children's biography of Corrie ten Boom, who saved hundreds of Jewish people during World War 2.

Can be read to young children aged 4-5, and read by children aged 6 plus.

Part of the new Do Great Things For God series. By exploring the lives of inspiring Christian women, this series will enthuse children about the great things they can do for God.

"This children's book details Corrie’s courage, forgiveness, and even remarkable joy as she is imprisoned"

Ellen Finstad, April 27th 2021

This children's book details Corrie’s courage, forgiveness, and even remarkable joy as she is imprisoned for hiding and helping the Jewish people trapped in the Netherlands.
