The Corrie ten Boom House, Haarlem
(4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Though the site of a tragic betrayal, The Corrie ten Boom House represents a story of hope and a family who ultimately sacrificed their own safety to help persecuted Jews and others during the Nazi occupation of Holland. Visit the classic Dutch-style house, restored to appear as it did during its time as a watch shop in the 1940s, when the Ten Boom family used their residence to protect refugees and shelter those in hiding. Join a guided tour to learn about the family's efforts and see their personal items, such as photographs, as well as the secret closet itself. Be sure to book your entry ahead of time, as reservations are limited and fill up quickly.

  • What was this a missed opportunity! Fine story involving you Corrie ten Boom yet in the glance: Hannie Schaft and Anne Frank may hosts. Upon entering were gone and all the doors locked behind us we got to hear a story in which the evangelists had more character than the upper hand the story of Corrie itself. We had the idea that we came in a cult. I don't really mind that this activity on number 1 to do things in Haarlem. I find that the story of Corrie is pre-empted by a guide who showed total lead by God on an unpleasant way. And that while we really of Christian descent. Pity and incomprehensible.
