You and your family are going into hiding for an indefinite period of time. You have 2 hours to pack before you leave. What will you take with you into hiding, assuming you have to take every precaution not to be discovered? What  possessions would you take with you that would fit into a backpack? What would be the advantages of going into hiding? What would be the disadvantages? How would you spend your spare time while in hiding?

I would pack what meant the most to me but not noticeable items. I would probably take some photos, books, a few pieces of clothing things that are important to me and stuff to do. If you went into hiding it would be good and bad. The good would be that you would be with your family all of the time you would lengthen out the time before you would get caught if you were to get caught. The bad would be the consequences if you were to get caught, not being able to talk for long periods of time, not being able to spend time with your friends, and not being able to be like a normal kid.

How is one suppose to just be able to pack stuff in a backpack? I have so much stuff that is of value to me. I think I would have to bring my iPod and obviously the charger because. I wouldn't know what to do without music. Especially seeing how I'd be with my family and we'd end up driving each other insane. My cell phone would definitely be another. Just for texting though. I'd have to bring books and my journal with me as well. Just odds and ends that will keep me entertained for hours on end while going through this. I'm not really seeing much of an advantage to this. I wouldn't be able to talk which I would not be able to do seeing as how I am very good with talking. I would get so aggravated being stuck with the same people for an extended period of time. I like my space and having enough space in between to not have someone breathing down my neck. Plus, I am kind of claustrophobic, so I would get incredible antsy to get the heck out of there. I like being outside and not being able to do sports would make me nuts. In my spare time I would either be reading, writing thoughts down in a journal, or listening to music.

If i had to move in two hours i would take a notebook,pens, and pencils so i could record things that happened, My most important things that i would bring though would be my clothes, games and other quiet things so i could play. the only advantage that you could have is that you would probably would not have a chance to get caught and you wouldnt have to go to school. the disadvantage is that you could go crazy, make too much noise, get caught qand ultimately die. In my spare time i would probably read and or play some games, it would be a good time for me to catch up on sleep though.

I would take all of the essentials like clothes, deoderant,toothpaste,soap,and food. I would also bring anything that had centimental value. I would also take every single board game and game that I had that was quite, so I would have something to do the whole time. The advantages of going into hiding would be to survive,and not having to go to school.
The disadvantages of going into hiding is that I would always be bored, i wouldn't be able to see my friends or get a good education and make money. I would send my spare time playing games and just trying to make the best of it. I also would workout with anything that I could so that if the Nazi's ever did come to get me and my family i would be able to defend ourselves to get away and go back into hiding. Pretty much I would literally go crazy!!!!

If I had two hours to pack things in to one bag then go in to hiding I would pack, my cell phone and its charger. Some pajamas and a some other clothes. I would pack my tooth brush and hair brush. My favorite books. Camera and batteries. All of my dried flowers too. I don't think this one bag would be big enough! Advantages would be that I would be with my mom all the time. Disadvantages would be that I would never see my friends! I also not being able to talk. I love to talk! And no talking on the phone. I believe that going in to hiding would be awful! not something that I would enjoy.

If I was going into hiding and had two hours to pack I would bring my i pod. I would also bring some clothes, money, books, games, and a lab top. I don't really see any advantages in going into hiding except I wouldn't have to go to school or work. The disadvantages of going into hiding would be not seeing any friends or even new people. Another disadvantage would be that you would always have to be quiet with the risk of getting caught. Also a disadvantage would be not being able to shower every day.

If my family was taken into hiding for an indefinite period of time I would take things that mean a lot to me. I would bring a diary, just like Anne did, that way I could keep track of all the things that had happened to me. I would bring some clothing so I wouldn't have to wear the same thing everyday and I would bring non perishable food so I could eat. The things that I would bring that I could pack into my backpack would be my iPod and the blanket that used to be my grandmothers. The advantages of going into hiding would be not having to go to school, but a disadvantage would be knowing the whole time that you could be found and die.

I would pack a little pillow, my favorite books to keep me from dying of boredom, lots of writing and drawing paper. i would bring my mp3 player and the charge so I cold listen to my music and the radio to keep up with whats happening with the outside world. i would pack as many clothes for my little brother and sister. my cell phone definitely. and to have my products to keep clean and have my tooth brush. the advantage of going into hiding was not going to school, never having to do home work. the disadvantages was not being able to see my friends and my family. I would miss my boyfriend unless he came with me. I would spend my time drawing and writing stories and listening to music to pass the time.

I would pack what I absolutely need first and then I would pack what I wanted to have. I would Pack me mp3 player because one the music and two I get the radio on it see whats going on in th outside world. The advantage of hiding is you stay alive and the disadvantage is that you are cooped up with who knows how many people in most likely small living quarters. And the other advantage is that you will be with your family and know that they are safe.

If I was to go into hiding I would bring my blanket that I have had for 15 years :) and I would bring a dairy, with drawing paper, extra clothing, mabe my ipod, my cell phone. My pictures to remember to be strong. most of all I would bring my jewlery that I have gotten from the people I loved. The good things about being in hiding would be I could write more and spend alot of time with my family. The bad things, the fact that I wouldnt be able to go to school or see my freinds an the worst of all haveing the fear of being found. and being quite. I would spend all my time writting or listening to music.
