Our mid-January podcast features one very tough ethics question, about moral rules in conflict. We present a case study from The Hiding Place, a classic story about Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II.

You are hiding political refugees in your house, and soldiers knock on your door. Do you lie to the soldiers to save a life, or do you tell the truth, putting your guests at risk? Two duties are in conflict: the duty to tell the truth, and the duty to preserve life. How do you decide?
