See also

Cast, crew, and supporters are heading to Sundance to celebrate the Texas movie, Return to the Hiding Place, at a Red Carpet Event during the Sundance Film Festival. Return to the Hiding Place (2013), follows up the story of The Hiding Place (1975). Both movies are based on true stories of the Dutch Resistance to the Nazi control of Holland in WWII. It has been written and directed by Peter Spencer of San Antonio, TX.

In The Hiding Place, Corrie and Betsie ten Boom are unmarried, middle-aged sisters working in their father's watchmaker shop in pre-WWII Holland. Their lives are cruelly turned upside down with the invasion of the Nazis. They are caught for protecting Jews in a hiding place in their family home and for breaking rationing rules. They are sent to a horrible concentration camp, but their Christian faith sustains and helps them resist bitterness. Betsie dies, but Corrie survives to teach others to love and forgive, as she learned to do of her former captors.

In Return to the Hiding Place, Dutch Resistance fighter Hans Poley in World War II, finds refuge at the ten Boom house. Hans defies new Nazi rules and escapes with his life. He finds the ten Boom house secretly filled with Jewish refugees. He becomes a part of Corrie ten Boom’s young resistance army. He gets a false identity and joins the Dutch Resistance. As the Nazis commit mounting atrocities, the danger for Hans and his new compatriots increasingly intensifies. When another resistance fighter, Piet Hartog, sees the savage cruelties committed against the Jews, he also becomes part of Corrie ten Boom young army. He joins young physics student and resistance journalist, Hans Poley, in numerous risky resistance adventures to rescue Jewish people, including children.
