Sophie Zawistowska in William Styron's novel Sophie's Choice (1976) tells the narrator, Stingo, how a Nazi doctor had forced her to choose whether it would be her son or her daughter who would live. Few lines of dialogue have ever seared themselves on the memory like the doctor's "You may keep one of your children."
