Additional Information: 

The Hiding Place is a 1975 film based on a true story about a Christian family in the Netherlands who hid a Jewish family in their home during World War II, and were subsequently arrested and sent to a concentration camp. It stars Jeanette Clift as Corrie ten Boom, and earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Most Promising Female Newcomer upon its release. The title of the film is inspired both by the literal hiding place in the home of the ten Booms, but also by a line in Psalm 119 which reads, "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word," a reference to the strong Christian themes of the film.
