would i?

Today I visited the Holocaust Museum. I've been there before, but not in a few years. Nothing much to add, except that the part where the museum recognizes the heroic and sometimes fatal efforts of non-Jews to save people from the Nazis always makes me wonder. Would I be brave, like some of those people? Would I just go along and try to keep out of trouble? Or would I take advantage of the situation to get ahead somehow?

I don't want to ever be in a position where the answer to these questions is more than academic.
