The hidden rooms of the Holocaust era – and the brave resisters who owned them – were responsible for saving countless lives. One of the most famous and admired families from this time was the ten Boom family of Haarlem, the Netherlands. The family owned a watch shop and lived in quarters above it. When Corrie ten Boom, the youngest of the family’s four children, became involved in the Dutch underground in 1940, an architect built a secret chamber in her bedroom. An untold number of Jewish fugitives were hidden there until the home was raided in 1944. The home is a museum today.
