Corrie ten Boomhuis
During World War II, the Ten Boom family provided a hiding place for Jewish people and members of the resistance in their home on Haarlem’s Barteljorisstraat. The family was betrayed, imprisoned and deported to concentration camps – only Corrie survived the ordeal. Her house is now a museum, the majority of which recreates how it would have looked in the 1940s.
Corrie ten Boom
Corrie ten Boom's house is now a museum. A large part of the house has been furnished in such a way that it corresponds to what it looked like in the 1940s, that is during the Second World War. Visitors can see the “Hiding Place”, a narrow space behind a false wall in Corrie's bedroom. Here Jewish people in hiding and others were safe from the Nazis. The museum also has a shop where books (including The Hidingplace), CDs and DVDs by and about Corrie and the Ten Boom family are sold.
