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 take a diary and my favorite book of all time. The disadvantages of going into hiding is the fact I would probably end up getting sick of my family because I would have to be with them 24/7. The advantages of hiding would be the fact that I wouldn't end up dying. Another disadvantage is that I wouldn't be able to talk to anyone and I would lose all my friends.

WOW i dont no what i would bring. i would bring as much food and water as i could. I would also bring my MP3 player so i would have something to do and my computer because my bag is huge. in my spare time i would probally sleep it away or read but it would be awfully boring. An advantage of hiding is not getting caught but on the down side you cannot leave so that would not be fun at all

If me and my family had to go into hiding i would pack all my clothes and a tooth brush. I would also pack a blanket and pillow so I would have something to sleep with. Then I would pack the things I have hanging on my wall for decorations so it would be a nice hiding place. The advantages would be not having to go to school and being able to be lazy all day. The disadvantages would be not having anything to do all day. I get bored easily so I don't think I would ever be able to go into hiding. I couldn't be quiet all the time either, I have to be talking to someone always. I would probably have a lot of time to read and draw pictures. Also I could get a lot of sleep because I wouldn't have anything else to do.

I would probably take blankets and cloths. Of course someone would bring food. In my spare time I would probably read or sleep. It would be very boaring. I honestly don't know what I would do.

I would pack enough clothes for a week and some of my favorite foods. I would also pack my diary like Anne did and some clothes that would disguise me me so whoever was looking for me wouldn't recognize me. The advantages of going into hiding would be that we wouldn't have to be out in the middle of whatever is going on. The disadvantages would be not enough food, limited space, limited food, we'd have to be quiet all the time so that no one would find us. I would read and write and play games with my little siblings. I would also draw what I saw because I think that pictures say more than words.

Another disadvantage is that we would not be able to see anyone else and we would lose all of our friends.

If I had to go into hiding I would take as much stuff and books as I could. As it said in the start of the movie, that they could not make noise after 8 AM, a book would be great. I would also take the biggest comforts of home, like an extra blanket or pillow, just to help me sleep at night when the bombs are going off. I would not take too much though and I would hope that what happened back then never happens again.

If I was going into hiding the first thing I would bring would be clothes. I would also bring a deck of cards and maybe even a little hand held game to occupy my time. I would also bring a small gun so if any Germans found me I could try and survive for as long as possible. I would also bring a phone and enough money for food. The advantages of going into hiding would be that you would not have to die or go to concentration camps. Also you would always be with your family and would not have to worry about paying bills. The disadvantages would be that I would have no friends and would not be able to go outside or even get an education. I would not be able to play any sports or be athletic so it would be very unhealthy. I would spend my spare time playing card games with my family and writing journals.

If my family, and I had to go into hiding things that I would bring with me would be book, journal, and things that I could sleep on like blankets, and pillows. I would also bring clothes, warm clothes because at night it gets very cold. Although I am usually not like this I would bring a weapon just in case if any of the German's would arrive I would be prepared to defend myself, and my family. Things that I would bring that could fit into a backpack would be small games, cards etc; Maybe bring food if it doesn't get crushed or destroyed in my bag. In my spare time in hiding I would probably be spending time with my family, talking with them. Thinking too, about if my family, and I will ever survive. Probably embracing the last moments I'll have with them. Advantages would be surviving, and living while others are getting killed, and the disadvantages would be not being able to go out in public, because you are a certain race, and you would get sent into a concentration camp.

I would take a diary, clothes, and my toothbrush. i wouldnt take anything else because i would have to pack light. Some advantages of going into hiding would be i would get to live but if we got caught then it would still be okay because i got to live a little longer. In my spare time while in hiding i would write a diary about what kinda place i was hiding in and what is happening.

If I went into hiding, I would take a journal for everyday events. I would also take my locket that my uncle gave me when I was just very little. I would also take my favorite book to read. In my spare time, I would read, write in my journal, or even just sleep. An advantage in hiding would be that I was safe and that I would not get put into a concentration camp and die. A disadvantage would be that I would get very bored and I would hate being with my brother all of the time. Another disadvantage would be that I would not be able to see my friends and that I would be inside all of the time.

If I had to hide I think that I would take my toothbrush, some cloths, my cell phone, my diary, blankets and pillows, some money, a hand gun and maybe a deck of cards for something to do. I think that some advantages while hiding would be that I could spend more time with my family and there probably wouldn't be any bills to pay. I think that some disadvantages while hiding would be that I couldn't see any of my friends, I wouldn't be able to play softball or bowl, and I wouldn't be able to get a good education. I think that while I would be hiding I would spend my spare time either reading, texting, playing cards, or writing in my journal.

If i was to go into hiding, I would probably take blankets and pillows, my ipod, money, and a books to read. Some advantages to hiding is, more family time, and no stress from jobs or school. The disadvantages are no contact with friends or anyone else and you couldn't go outside. While I'm in hiding i would most likely spend my time reading or writing something.

I don't know what I would bring if I had to go into hiding, it would depend on how long I was hiding. Depending on the time I was in hiding I would probably bring a small pillow, and a blanket, a notebook, and a pencil, and lots of food and water. I would also bring my ipod and my phone and if it fit, my laptop. some advantages of going into hiding, is you have lots of time to sleep, and think about what your going to do when you get out. Some disadvantages, would be you couldn't hang out with your friends, and it would be awfully boring having to spend a large amount of time in a designated space, without being able to leave.

What I would bring into hiding is a toothbrush, a pillow, a blanket, a drawing pad and a pencil, and a few book and a lamp/flashlight and some food for the amount of time you go into hiding. One of the advantages is you do not get found by the people who are looking for you it is kinda like witness protection. One of the disadvantages is you are not able to get to see your friends.
