This is the hiding place in Corrie ten Boom's bedroom.  Corrie's simple message to everyone she could tell was, "Jesus is Victor."  The ten Boom's house was a safe haven for Jewish people during the second world war.  This amazing family helped hundreds of Jewish people with food, shelter and Christ's love.  While being arrested Mr. Ten Boom (in his mid 80's) was told by a Nazi officer that if he would comply they would allow him to stay in his home.  His response was, "as soon as you leave I will open my door to anyone who knocks."  He was arrested and died in prison 10 days later.  He's my hero!
