I, first, heard about The Hiding Place, when a teacher’s aide was reading Corrie’s
book, while I was a seventh grade student, in 1973.

Between 1974 and 1977, I
would estimate how I read Corrie’s book 20 or 25 times and, when the movie came out, I having
been deafened at the age of ten) knew what was going on, without hearing.

I even
realized that they’d changed the jailhouse scene, where the German guard told Mr. ten Boom he
could stay home to the back of the military truck.

This is an awe inspiring
story and I have always loved it.
