They probably had people at key points and lots more would probably be coming

    In The Hiding Place, Corrie was faced with many decisions, including if it would be okay in this circumstance to break God’s law and if what she was doing even breaking it at all. I believe that for her circumstance, it was okay to lie to them, even though God told us not to. I also believe that it was not a sin to lie to the Nazis who were doing wrong to the Jews. For instance, we are called to love others people and help them out. Because Corrie saw wrong being done to other people, she decided

I had no idea how much persecution was shown toward the Jewish community during the early to mid 1900s. It
