"Time with Corrie" has been well-received around the globe. We are thankful for the positive words we have received as feedback for this production, and include some here for your consideration.
"''After all these years, Corrie ten Boom returns to Europe! We were privileged to host the European premiere of ''Corrie Remembers'' by Susan Sandager and it was a night to remember for us.
Because we've a church of over 50 nationalities the audience came from various faith backgrounds and cultures, including Dutch Christians and European Jews.
They were so attentive that you could have heard a pew squeak. At a time when Europe is once more smoldering with racism and sectarian anxiety,
in walks this dear Righteous Gentile to charm and challenge the whole lot of us. Corrie's poignant message and soothing presence reminded us of Christ's most basic
mandate that we must love one another as God loved us. Hers is voice that must again be heard.''"

"Fabulous evening ..... We had Jews and Christians from Afula, Jerusalem, Karmiel, Nazareth and lots of yishuvim around. There were students in their twenties, folks in their seventies, and everything in between. There were (at least!) Catholics, various kinds of Evangelicals, Brethren, secular Jews and Orthodox Jews. There were Arabs, Jews, Americans and Europeans. And everyone was inspired, some for the first time, by the story of Corrie ten Boom. Tremendous. The Galilee Center for Studies in Jewish-Christian Relations at Yezreel Valley College hit a home run.

"Thank you for bringing to life an important part of Christian history.
It was as if we were transported back in time to sit at the feet of Corrie Ten Boom.
This presentation is more than history for it motivates believers toward persevering
in life's most challenging situations…(it) emphasizes the importance of God's value
on the Jewish people. The mixture of well-presented drama interspersed with well-timed
video clips and concluding comments, blended together to create an unforgettable evening
for all age groups. I would recommend this presentation in the highest regard.
Thanks for a quality performance."

"Susie Sandager’s presentation of “Corrie Remembers” brought together over three hundred Jews, Protestants, Catholics and Unitarians from four churches and a synagogue for a deeply moving, uplifting experience. Her presentation not only shed light on a little-known story of faith and courage, but inspired those in attendance to further interfaith cooperation."

"I almost gasped. It was as if Corrie herself had entered the auditorium, the Corrie we met in the 1970’s. It was as if Corrie had risen from the dead. It was an amazing performance from an actress who never studied acting."

"Your performances were very informative, thought provoking, engaging and memorable. It is clear how moved and motivated the audience was by your presentations."

"Relating to the Shoah is mind-numbing because of the sheer magnitude of millions of lives lost. Our only hope is to connect to individual lives and stories that touch our hearts. Corrie Remembers is powerful because, through Susie Sandager's ''anointing'' as the person to carry one woman's story forward through the generations, we connect to one heart, one soul who could not idly stand by. Through her, we see the faces and hear the voices of those she rescued, those she could not, even the humanity of some of the perpetrators who were caught in that horrible web. Corrie continues to rescue all of us, as we are given a chance to remember our humanity, and the power of a single act of redemption."

Caitlin Blumberg
Cantor, B'Nai Israel

"When Susie Sandager brings Corrie Ten Boom to life on stage, I feel that she is most definitely divinely inspired, as though she were a prophet herself. Her message is certainly as important as those of the prophets, and her delivery is as convincing. The energy and talent she brings is a gift from G-d."

"Susie Sandager's presentation of Corrie ten Boom has become more and more powerful over the years. Our community is very fortunate to have someone who is so talented and passionate in her belief that one person can make a difference. Watching and listening to Susie, you are transported into another time and place as she becomes Corrie."

Regina Turner

"Susie Sandager's marvelous portrayal of Corrie Ten-Boom succeeded on many levels. She helped us understand the choices the Ten-Boom family made to do good in the face of evil with no hidden agendas. She opened up a window on the difficulty such a decision posed for the family and the community. She helped us see the faith decision made by the Ten-Boom family in a new light. Susie Sandager's portrayal bridged the gap that occasionally looms between the Jewish and the Christian community, promoting dialogue and understanding. I look forward to her return to our community."

"Your recent presentation of the Corrie ten Boom story to our Hadassah Chapter, in conjunction with the Jewish Community Center was truly magnificent. Everyone who saw you is still speaking your praises…You brought tears and laughter to a mesmerized audience and taught us that a world which could stand by and see the horrors of the Holocaust and do nothing must shoulder some of the blame. And then you took that statement home to the here and now…..you taught a powerful message by means of your caring and your talent."

Lana Waltzer

"I believe that if Corrie Ten Boom could have witnessed the warmth generated in the Beth Tzedec by Susan Sandager’s portrayal of her life, she would have been proud to be a catalyst for Christian-Jewish understanding. For that is what the ‘Corrie Remembers’ event became – an exercise of Christian-Jewish dialogue. On so many levels, this collaboration was a success – I sincerely hope you share my enthusiasm!"

Her ability to transform herself into this righteous woman is nothing short of remarkable. I highly recommend this program to anyone—Jew or Christian. After seeing Susie as Corrie, you will realize that even in the midst of darkness, G-d’s presence can be felt. Susie is a bridge builder. She has dedicated herself to the vital task of forging links between Jews and Christians. G-d Bless Susie Sandager!!!"

"This was one of the most moving presentations that I have ever heard. Susie captured the unique personality of Corrie ten Boom. Susie captured not only the unique personality of Corrie ten Boom but also her tenacity and determination to save Jews only because they were human beings. I would enthusiastically recommend this presentation."

"One of the most incredible performances that I have ever seen, both in terms of the beauty of the presentation and in the story that it tells of one woman’s love for her fellow man in the face of adversity."

Martin Goldman
Director Survivor Affairs, US Holocaust Memorial Museum

"Corrie Ten Boom was a woman with a special legacy born out of her experiences in the Dutch Resistance and at a Nazi concentration camp. She was one of those brave Righteous Gentiles motivated to act because of her beliefs. The story of the Ten Boom family is unique and its telling requires the same convictions and spiritual understanding, as the family shared.

The Corrie Remembers performance by Susie Sandager is moving and has a spiritual quality that is hard to define. The performance does not only touch the soul but reaches the heart and the mind.

I warmly recommend Corrie Remembers by Susie Sandager to churches, theaters and community centers anywhere in the world."

Dr. Susanna Kokkonen
Director, Christian Friends of Yad Vashem
Jerusalem
"Susie Sandager as Corrie ten Boom is a beautiful and powerful presentation of a heart for Christ’s forgiveness and love. We were blessed to host Susie at our annual Celebration of Light Christmas brunch in 2010 and our ladies were moved by the love of Susie and the ministry of Corrie ten Boom. We pray that Susie’s ministry continues to share the love and forgiveness of Christ and that her commanding message reaches far across the globe."
