THe little bit of news they get comes once a week from someone else. Nothing is experienced first-hand anymore. There were no social lives, no communication with the outer world.

Critical Responses1. What would you do if you were asked to hide someone in your home, barn, or attic? (Knowing that if you were caught with the hiders, you would face the same fate as them)If I were asked to hide someone in my home, barn, or attic, I would say yes. The life of the people is important to me. I would hide someone, however I would rather give them the resources to get to a safer place. My reasoning behind my answer is this; Anne's family lived two more years because of the generosity of the people hiding them. If I were able to hide someone, I would say yes.2. What are some of the sounds heard from the annex? What do they represent? 1. Street organ- The street organ represents a happy, normal life. THis sound is important because Anne longs to have a life like that again. 2. Children playing- The sound of children playing representsthe joyful life they used to have. 3. Soilders marching- The soilders remind the Franks of the dangers of the time. 4. Nazis talking-The Nazis represent why they are in the situation of life or death.
