Corrie Ten Boom

As an avid reader, I enjoy a good book. Consequently people frequently lend me books in the belief that I will be inspired by their contents. One such book I was recently lent was The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. I'm yet to read it, but I understand it is the story of a Dutch girl and her sister that get arrested by the nazis for hiding Jews. They are detained in a concentration camp where they maintain their faith in God with the help of a hidden Bible.

Quite a remarkable story. However, I do have my concerns. Concentration camp inmates were frequently strip searched by guards looking for valuables. Bibles are generally fairly large. Even a pocket sized bible would easily be spotted during one of these searches. So where did they hide in when they were naked?

I think perhaps the title should be changed. Certain parts of the human anatomy do not need attention drawn to them!
