After seeing the enormous queues for the Anne Frank House we decided to give it a miss and go instead to the Ten Boom house in Haarlem. SO glad we did!! We were in a group of only 6 with a lovely fellow, a volunteer, as our guide. Having read Corrie's book many years ago it was quite a surreal experience stepping into the house where this amazing story of a family's heroic actions during WW2 took place. Amazing that there is no charge for the tour; you have the choice to make a donation or purchase book, DVD or such. The time we spent there was probably a highlight of our 6 week holiday. So much that you see is about wars, excessive wealth and opulence, battles for power and man's inhumanity to man. This place is about the bravery of a family with strong beliefs, who refused to be cowed into inaction when they saw their fellow man being treated inhumanely. Highly recommended
