‘Corrie Ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
Corrie Ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated – When Nazi forces invaded Holland in 1940 and began rounding up Jews, Corrie ten Boom, her sister Betsie, and their elderly father risked their lives to save as many as possible. A hidden room was secretly built in their home where the oppressed Jews took refuge until a Gestapo raid put an end to their operation.
For their “crimes,” Corrie and Betsie were sent to the notorious concentration camp at Ravensbruck, where they suffered relentless cruelty. Struggling to reconcile God’s goodness with the terrible realities of the camp, the sisters clung desperately to their Christian faith. Betsie died in the camp, but Corrie was miraculously released due to a clerical error. She spent the rest of her days caring for other death camp survivors and sharing her story with the world. Corrie’s 1971 best-selling book, The Hiding Place, provides her account of persevering faith and forgiveness in the face of terrible evil.
Featuring an interview with Pam Rosewell Moore, Corrie’s longtime assistant, and scenes filmed in the ten Boom house in Holland where the actual events took place, Corrie ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated recounts this unforgettable story for a new generation.
If you’ve never heard of Corrie Ten Boom, you’re missing out! This is a documentary on her life, one woman’s triumph over Nazi Imprisonment. Here are a few things I liked about this one:
- Informative and parts of it really interesting and inspiring
- Loved that this entire family lived by the Bible.
- Fascinating facts about their house.
- Amazing what she suffered and her tremendous act of forgiveness.
- Didn’t realize Corrie had a sense of humor too.
I would encourage you to watch this and learn more about Corrie and her life. Watching this inspires you to want to live like Jesus in your everyday life!
