The youngest child of Casper and Cornelia ten Boom, she grew up in the city of Haarlem, where her father had a watch shop in the center of town. Corrie became a Christian at the age of five years, and loved and served the Lord Jesus from that time onwards. During World War II, Corrie, her elder sister, Betsie, and their elderly father received Jewish refugees in their home.
