You are a Jew during the Holocaust. You are hiding with three other families, in the attic of a German family who agreed to give you shelter. One night you hear noises and realize that German soldiers have come in to look for you. A baby of one of the families starts crying. The mother tries to silence him without success.
People next to you offer to kill the baby. On the one hand, killing a baby is a terrible act. On the other, if he won’t stop, the soldiers might find you and kill all of you.
What would you do? Would you kill the baby or not?
