Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom was born on this day in 1892. Along with her father and other family members, she helped numerous Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. She died on her birthday, April 15, 1983. She was 91.
Her family was arrested in 1944. Her father 10 days later at Scheveningen prison. Corrie and her sister Betsie were sent to Ravensbruck where Betsie died.
The Hiding Place tells her story.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
