    I really don't know what I'd do. I'd try to suppress the baby's crying as much as I could. If that didn't work, I'd try to temporarily move away from the baby and pray that I didn't get caught and that I'd be able to reunite with the baby. I don't think I'd have the heart to kill it.

    There is no rational answer to this question.

    sorry, but my will to survive is greater than my love of babies (which isn't all that great in the first place)... if it's down to everyone or the baby, the baby is dying... it'd die if the Nazis discovered it anyways, so the kid is doomed

    Yes, I will kill the baby, but only because Nazi-occupied France is no place for children.

    I'd kill the baby. Seeing as I have a disability, if the Nazis found me, I'd go straight to my death.

    This baby cannot stop crying, and you know if it continues to cry, you, and everyone under the floor, could possibly be discovered by the nazis and killed. You don't have time to find out if they're going to skip your house or not, and even then, there is still the possibility of them hearing it.

    Do you kill the baby?
    Is it an ugly baby?
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    I am hiding with many other Jewish people. Surely someone else will deal with my problem for me. I'm not the killing type anyway.

    Oh yea... you were selling baked goods a month ago, and now you're gonna take on an armed force that conqured lands from Sahara desert to Moscow. That's hardcore. They should make a movie about you.

    When the Soviets invaded the Germans in their towns, the Germans met them with heavy resistance, so I don't see why jews should *necessarily* be running from the Nazi's, in the same context.
    You mean the indoctrinated child soldiers from Hitler Jugend and such?
    Yeah, Jews definately didn't have those.

    An acquaintance of mine told a story of a situation like this when she was a child. The Japanese soldiers would have hacked everyone to death if they were discovered. The mother had no choice but to pass her baby over to one of the village elders who did whatever was necessary.

    I wouldn't hide somewhere with a baby in the first place. Talk about liability. That motherfucker is getting tossed out the window before the Nazi's even make it there.
