Herrineringen aan Corrie ten Boom 

 

The Ten Boom family were devoted Christians who dedicated their lives in service to their fellow man. Their home was always an “open house” for anyone in need. Through the decades the Ten Booms were very active in social work in Haarlem, and their faith inspired them to serve the religious community and society at large.

De geschiedenis van de familie Ten Boom getuigt van hun liefde voor en betrokkenheid bij het Joodse volk. Hun huis is opnieuw een ‘open huis’, net zoals in de tijd toen de Ten Booms hier woonden. Het museum is een gedenkteken voor deze familie die als christenen leefden door de genade van en in gehoorzaamheid aan God.

For her efforts to hide Jews from arrest and deportation during the German occupation of the Netherlands, Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) received recognition from the Yad Vashem Remembrance Authority as one of the “Righteous Among the Nations” on December 12, 1967. In resisting Nazi persecution, ten Boom acted in concert with her religious beliefs, her family experience, and the Dutch resistance. Her defiance led to imprisonment, internment in a concentration camp, and loss of family members who died from maltreatment while in German custody.
