This thrilling, true tale of young people daring to resist one of history's cruelest tyrants attests that a brave, faithful few can change the tide of history. - Container.
"When Corrie ten Boom realizes the rising Nazi empire will swallow Holland and create the holocaust of every innocent Jew in secret death-camps, she faces the deadly threat of these "Death-Skull Storm Troopers" with a surprising remedy: an army of untrained teenagers. Around that same time, brilliant young physics student, Hans Poley, chooses not to join the Nazi party. To protect him, his parents force him into hiding in the home of Corrie ten Boom. While in hiding, he witnesses the atrocities toward the suffering Jews and decides he must do something. Hans is drawn by resistance fighter, Piet Hartog, and love of Piet's life - Aty van Woerden (Corrie ten Boom's niece) into an intricate web of espionage and clandestine activities centered in the famous Hiding Place. As part of Corrie ten Boom's army of untrained teenagers, Hans, Piet, and their friends navigate a deadly labyrinth of challenges to rescue the Jewish people in their modern-day, panicked exodus from death while embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt with the underground involving Gestapo hijacks, daring rescues, codes in windswept old windmills, and stunning miracles in one of history's most famous dramas."--

What Corrie Ten Boom and her family did during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands was nothing short of amazing and they never took credit for themselves and always gave credit for their strength to Jesus. Apparently this wasn't enough so a 'story' is re-written using the theme of the Ten-Boom family and an 'underground' army of students---Really?
Corrie Ten Boom's students were mentally challenged boys & girls that were in first form. She taught these children as a Sunday School class. The Nazi regime had plans to perform euthanasia to children and adults who had severe learning disabilities. Corrie's classes were discontinued due to the Nazi's outlawing religious gatherings. Corrie taught simple Bible stories, she was not Jewish. The Ten-Boom family were all active members of the Dutch Reformed Church. Even when their Pastor told them not to hide any Jews, The Ten-Booms put their trust in God, not in man. Read the book; The Hiding Place, or watch the original movie by the same name. Corrie also wrote many short booklets. Those are very rewarding to read.

A poor remake of the original. Interesting I guess if your have never watched "The Hiding Place."
