"Honored • Elizabeth and Caspar ten Boom, with the title of Righteous Among the Nations by Israel's Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority. The sister and father of Corrie ten Boom (author of The Hiding Place) were instrumental in saving nearly 800 Jewish lives before their imprisonment and deaths in German concentration camps. Corrie ten Boom was honored with the same title in 1967." (via Christianity Today)

I grew up with the story of Corrie ten Boom and her heroic family of Dutch Calvinists who risked their lives to save Jews in
Nazi occupied Holland.

It is more than fitting that Betsy and Casper have also been recognized for their heroic sacrifice.

Here's a brief video of the secret hiding place built in Corrie's bedroom where 6 "guests" - 4 Jews and 2 members of the Dutch underground took refuge when the Gestapo arrested the Ten Boom family in 1944. Although the family all went to prison and Corrie alone survived (she was released due to a clerical error one week before all the women her age were gassed.) the hiding place was never found and all those sheltered there escaped.



The Ten boom house is now a museum. Corrie later shared her family's story in the moving book The Hiding Place which became a quite gripping film. Both are still available and still inspire today.

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
