Picture 2 shows Jerry pointing at the door to the hiding place! This was on the third floor of the house. We went up a spiral staircase to Corrie’s bedroom.
Picture 3 shows me in the hiding place! They cut the wall so we could see in and even step into it. It was very small.
Picture 4 is of Jerry and me in front of the ten Boom Clock Shop!
Picture 5 shows inside the clock shop. This is where Corrie sat everyday working. There was a wall behind her but it has been removed for some reason.
Picture 6 shows the living room which is above the clock shop.
Picture 7 shows the side door. It opens out to the alley. This is the door the family and friends used. It’s also the door the police came to when they arrested the family for hiding Jews. I must add here: the Jews were never found! When it was safe they escaped across the roof tops!
Pictures 8 & 9 The ten Boom Clock Shop is the smallest building on the block.
So there you have it. One of the most thrilling trips I’ve had! I have so many books of Corrie ten Boom’s. We couldn’t thank Vivian, Tom and Jasper enough for taking us. They enjoyed it too and were glad to learn of a heroin in their own country!
If you don’t know about Corrie ten Boom or the Hiding Place I highly recommend her books: The Hiding Place, Each New Day, Prison Letters,This Day Is The Lord’s, Tramp For The Lord, Plenty For Everyone, Amazing Love, Corrie’s Christmas Memories, and the movie, The Hiding Place. Another book written by one of the men who was hidden in this house is also very good reading, Return To The Hiding Place. by Hans Poley.
