Jewish Biography --> Righteous among the Nations
Cornelia "Corrie" ten Boom (Amsterdam, April 15, 1892 Orange, California, April 15, 1983) was a Dutch Christian, who with her father and other family members helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. Her family was arrested due to an informant in 1944, and her father died 10 days later at Scheveningen prison where they were first held. A sister, brother and nephew were released, but Corrie and her sister Betsie were sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp, where only Corrie survived.

Ten Boom wrote eight books and spoke frequently in the postwar years about her experiences. She aided Holocaust survivors. She wrote an autobiography, The Hiding Place (1971), about her experiences. It was adapted as a film of the same name two years later and starred Jeannette Clift as Corrie.
