Reviews - What do customers think about Prisoner And Yet?
A Christian classic by a heroine of the faith. Feb 16, 1999
Raw and real, this direct translation from the original Dutch is the work which served as the foundation for the later book and subsequent movie "The Hiding Place." It is excellent primary source material for students of World War II and essential reading for serious students of the Holocaust. Confessing Christians and nonbelievers alike will be humbled as they view the horrors of Ravensbruck through Corrie's witness. Her testimony to the power of the love of Christ will touch even the most callous hearts.
