Rich in History - Hard to believe it happened! Jun 16, 2011
This is better known to some as "The Hiding Place" which was based on a TRUE STORY of Corrie Ten Boom. This may change, but normally they only have 2 groups a day beginning around 9-10AM?. One in English, the other in Dutch?. So you must show up for the first one to find out. A guide begins by telling you the whole story based on this family's Christian faith to do "right" by the Jews. The talk takes about an hour. So young children who can't be quite will NOT be tolerated!! I took some bad looks when I took my 3 year old in, but I assured them she would be quiet and she was. You are then shown the house, family photos, and THE HIDING SPOT!! THE SIZE WILL AMAZE YOU that so many people fit!!! ... and HOW they got there.............

The story for this home and family is too long for me to go into detail.... except to say, IF you are in Haarlem, Don't miss this!! I dare say,,, it is equally as moving as Anne Frank, just lesser known. This woman went on to do exceptional things after her family died in the concentration camps. She was the only one who lived. They saved many many jews, pregnant girls and their babies, etc.. during this time that would have been killed.
