FEATURED RESOURCE

The Corrie ten Boom Story

The Torchlighters: The Corrie ten Boom Story DVD

by Christian History Institute
(30 minutes, plus extras)

Corrie ten Boom and her family are masters of their craft; they repair broken watches and return them safely to their owners. But as the evil of World War II sweeps through their city, a new kind of “watch” comes to their care: an innocent Jewish baby, desperately needing protection from the cruelty of the new Nazi regime.

How will the ten Booms keep this baby and many others out of harm’s way, and what will be the cost of serving God amidst unthinkable evils? When faith is tested, hope is tried, and love is strained, will Corrie’s God prevail? See her amazing story of courage, sacrifice, and forgiveness anew through this gripping episode of The Torchlighters.

The Torchlighters: The Corrie ten Boom Story is produced by Christian History Institute and The Voice of the Martyrs.

Features:

  • English and Spanish languages with optional English and Spanish subtitles
  • Corrie ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated, a 55-minute documentary

  • Reproducible student handouts, including comprehension and discussion questions, puzzles, activities, coloring, and more
