Cornelia Johanna Arnolda ten Boom, generally known as Corrie ten Boom, (April 15, 1892 – April 15, 1983) was a Dutch Christian Holocaust survivor who helped many Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Corrie co-wrote her autobiography, "The Hiding Place," which was later made into a movie of the same name.
She spent time in a Nazi Concentration Camp. Her sister died in that camp. Corrie survived, and years later, she saw one of the Nazi guards who had tortured her and others. He had become a Christian, and, through the power of the Holy Spirit and the forgiveness that comes through knowing Jesus Christ, Corrie and her former Nazi guard embraced each other, and she forgave him.
