We are then going to spend some time in Haarlem, home to Corrie Ten Boom- "The Hiding Place"
During the Second World War, the Ten Boom home became a refuge, a hiding place, for fugitives and those hunted by the Nazis. By protecting these people, Casper and his daughters, Corrie and Betsie, risked their lives. This non-violent resistance against the Nazi-oppressors was the Ten Booms' way of living out their Christian faith. This faith led them to hide Jews, students who refused to cooperate with the Nazis, and members of the Dutch underground resistance movement.
Finally we will be stopping in the Clara Maria Cheese Factory and shoe makers.
They not only make their own cheese and wooden shoes, they have a wonderful farm with friendly animals for the kids to play with. They also have a large restaurant.
