THat would be hiding from the Nazis who mean to do Jews and people who help them harm. The hiding place appears as a constant image of safety in periods of duress. When Father reads the verse from Psalm 119:114, “Thou art my shield and my hiding place,” to his young children, he does not know how important the words will become. Adding to the physical sense of a hiding place, Corrie and the Underground build a secret cupboard in the Beje, which provides a safe haven for many Jews against the terror of the Nazis.
