The Hiding Place is Published

November 2, 1971
Released during this month in 1971, author Corrie Ten Boom (along with John and Elizabeth Sherrill) recounted her years living before, during and even a little after the Holocasust in the book “The Hiding Place.” The title refers to both a physical hiding place where her family hid Jewish people from the Nazi’s and also to Psalm 119:114 which states, "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word...” The book was turned into a movie in 1975 by World Wide Pictures and actress Jeanette Clift George received a Golden Globe nomination for Most Promising Newcomer Female.
