She helped many Jews escape and was eventually imprisoned in a concentration camp with her father and her sister, Betsie. Both her father and her sister died. Ten Boom was released due to a clerical error one week before all the women her age were sent to the gas chamber. She would go on to author many more books and dedicated her life to speaking about God 's love and forgiveness in over 60 countries. The ten Boom family were members of the Dutch Reformed Church which held a strong belief in the equality of all human beings before God. Corrie recorded her memories from part of her childhood, that was spent in Amsterdam before the family made a permanent move to Haarlem a neighboring town.
