Dear Juli I am scared I am confused, I have to leave home in order to keep safe. I know this is for our own good but I don’t want to leave, even though my life isn’t what you call perfect with the Nazi’s around but I think it’s perfectly fine and I want to keep it the same. I know we have to leave because if we don’t sooner or later they will separate us. When I heard this it didn’t come to me as a surprise I knew it would happen sooner or later. We where to hide in a far way place where no one was to find us, but where, in a small crowded annex above my fathers office. We only has one hour before our departure. I couldn’t take a suitcase, or they would suspect I was leaving. Therefore I would have to find places within me to hide the objects. There is a question that keeps crossing my head; it gives me goose bumps, ‘ ’what if they catch us on the way to the annex?’’ I have one hour to gather all my necessities, it is freezing outside, therefore I will take double of clothing I will put sock over sock, pants over pants, and jacks over jackets. I will most definitely include medication, incase someone gets sick we will have something to run to. I will also bring a couple of knifes in order to protect ourselves because we don’t know anything can happen. I would also include lots of canned food due to the fact that it would last longer. Last but not least I would include a couple of books, which would be a way to keep me entertained. Maybe then the time would go faster. I would hide everything under my clothing in layers, with the bulky winter clothing on top. I am scared I don’t want to hide for the rest of life waiting till one day the war will end and I can come out from hiding. I want to be a normal girl that lives in her home with her family hangs and out with her friends in school, but no I am girl that has to live in annex with 8 people hoping we are safe and never to be found.
