It’s hard to believe that in this very modest sized home large numbers of Jews were provided refuge and comfort during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. For this free tour an English speaking guide relates the fascinating story of the Ten Boom family who...More

The guides are volunteers who are giving tours because they really believe in the Ten Boom love. They saved 800 people from this one home right down the street from the German HQ. About 1 Hour tour.
