What kind of work did Corrie ten Boom do in prison?

Both Betsie and her sister Corrie worked at home, with youth groups and in her father's shop. Her father was a 'clockmaker' and sold and repaired watches, clocks and other timepieces.

While imprisoned at Westerbork, the first camp they were taken to, the women were give factory type work knitting socks and other garments for German soldiers as part of the German 'war effort', though Westerbork was in the Netherlands.

When they moved Corrie and her sister to Ravensbruck in the heart of Germany, the conditions were even worse. Westerbork was primarily a 'work camp', a waiting camp on the way to concentration camps. Ravensbruck, housing thousands of women prisoners was hellish and served as a hard labor slave camp and killing center. Betsy died of typhoid fever, which sometimes occurred naturally and was sometimes introduced experimentally or for the purpose of mass murder by the Nazis.

In the camp, the women were given various jobs which ranged from sorting clothing and rags to other manual labor, but were eventually used for quarry work: hard labor even for young men, breaking and carrying heavy rocks and stones and carting them out of areas of the quarry. (The stones were used in building the "Fuhrer-buildings" in Germany).

When Betsy died, she had a vision she relayed to Corrie about going home to the Netherlands and opening a "Displaced Person Center": a center where people returning from the camps with no where to live could come and recover from the horror and abuse, and make arrangements to go back to living. Corrie and a friend of hers did just exactly that: she aided persons broken from the war to 'get back to living' with a message of hope.

Corrie Ten Boom eventually came to the U.S., and sought funding to visit churches and organizations to tell her story and preach the Gospel. She spoke at Billy Graham rallies and on TV as well, preaching forgiveness and the grace of God, and that there was no place so dark that God's grace was not brighter still. In her last years, she wrote many inspirational autobiographies and stories, as well as devotionals to train Christians to trust the Lord. Her role as an evangelist world wide led to her describing herself as a "Tramp for the Lord", a vagabond going anywhere where people would listen to her story. She died quietly in her 80s, after a prolonged battle with two strokes and paralysis.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between 'Deutsch-land' 'Dutch-land' 'Deitschland' 'Deutsch' 'Dutch' and 'Deitsch' and why are they so similar?

Deutschland is German for Germany

Deutsch is the German language

Deitschland is Deitsch for Germany

Deitsch is a German dialect

Dutchland doesn't exist, it's called The Netherlands

Dutch applies either people from the Netherlands or their language

Dutch, Duits, Diets, Deitsch and Deutsch are similar because they are cognate. Meaning that they all ultimately derive from the same root word.

This root is found in the Common West Germanic of about 200-400 AD, and was þeod (or theod) and it meant people.

Though the modern words that derive from this root are similar, they have very different meanings.

Deutsch in German, and Duits in Dutch, means German.

Dutch in English, and Diets in Dutch, means Dutch.

Deitsch is the word used among the Pennsylvania Germans for both modern German and Pennsylvania German.

What is the difference between Deutsch and Dutch?

Dutch is the language of Netherlands, whereas the Deutsch is the language of Germany.

They are not the same. The scripts are similar but that does not make them the same.

Plus the phonetics and the words are totally different.

Dutch is a Low German language, German is a High German language. The High and Low is about geography btw.

The main difference, apart from a lot of different words, is the so called High German consonant shift.

Why did Corrie ten Boom write the Hiding Place?

She wrote it in order to pass on what she had learned during her imprisonment. She wrote it to show that there is nothing that cannot be forgiven.

She probably didn't want that story to be forgotten. I suspect it was also her way of moving on and putting that piece of history behind her.

Did Corrie ten Boom prophesy about Arkansas?

I highly doubt it. She travelled the world to tell people that Christ died for your sins and you need to accept Him. She never claimed to be a prophet. I have most of Corrie Ten Boom's writings and I do not recall any mention of Arkansas in anything written. She was not a Prophet. She was not a prophet. She spoke several times about a dream she had that there were ten layers of angels over a region of the US she believed was northwest Arkansas.
