    Corrie and Betsie ten Boom are middle-aged sisters working in their father's watchmaker shop in pre-WWII Holland. Their uneventful lives are disrupted with the coming of the Nazis.

Betsie eventually dies, but Corrie survives, and after the war, must learn to love and forgive her former captors. (IMDB)

      I agree. I'm thankful to God for sparing Corrie's life in that concentration camp, so she lived to share her story.

All glory to God.
