Vision Baptist Church Hosting Righteous Musical

Vision Baptist Church Hosting Righteous Musical

Vision Baptist Church at 1125 Alpha Drive in Alpharetta is playing host to a musical drama about Corrie ten Bloom, a Dutch righteous gentile, at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14.

“The Hiding Place” tells the story of how ten Bloom and her family led a resistance group against German occupation in Haarlem, Holland, from 1942 to 1944 and provided and arranged for the shelter of dozens of Jews from the Nazis.

The Calvinist ten Bloom family was betrayed and arrested at the end of February 1944. Corrie’s father, Casper, 84, died after 10 days of interrogation. Corrie’s sister Betsie died in the Ravensbruck concentration camp in December 1944. Corrie survived, and after the war she wrote about her experiences.

Yad Vashem recognized Corrie ten Bloom as one of the Righteous Among the Nations in 1967, and Casper and Betsie ten Bloom received that recognition in 2007.

The performance by the Shining Light Players from Pensacola, Fla., is free, and Vision Baptist, which expresses love and appreciation for its Jewish neighbors and for Israel, encourages members of the Jewish community to attend. For more information, call the church at 770-456-5881.
