11 children are playing. out of these 11 one is going to be the seeker. So, now we have 10 children and 5 places to hide. Each child can go and hide in any one of these 5 places. that implies, the number of ways they can hide is 510.

Now, if all the 5 places are to be used for hiding, it can be done in 510-(5C1 + 5C2 + 5C3 + 5C4 + 5C5) = 510- (25-1) = 510-210+1.

Therefore, the required probability is (510-210+1)/510

The reason that some Jewish people went into hiding was to stay away from being sent to an unfair death in a concentration camp, also they went into hiding for their children, some Jewish families were not able to hide everyone so they hid their children. Some Jewish children were sent to live with non-Jewish relatives, or maybe even a non-Jewish friend. These cautions may have saved Jews their life

When did people start hiding from the Nazis in the Holocaust?

As early as 1933 when those who had assimilated into German society and rejected orthodoxy began to see that escape was the only option. They were also victims of the Nuremburg Laws, and those that got tired of it started to go into hiding before they "disappeared" with the other people. Some, however, did not go into hiding, but sent their children into hiding or to other areas so that they would have a chance to survive.

What did the children bring into hiding during the Holocaust?

Often times it would be an item of comfort. A stuffed toy or doll they could cling to in times of fear or loneliness. Children that were separated from their parents would likely have a small memento from their parents. A small photo perhaps. Some parents left locks of their hair or a kerchief to be clutched while in hiding.
