Corrie told the story of her family and their work during World War II in her most famous book, The Hiding Place (1971), which was made into a film by in 1975. She was knighted by the Queen of the Netherlands in recognition of her work during the war, and a museum in the Dutch city of Haarlem is dedicated to her and her family.
