Comedy in a Minor Key by Hans Keilor

What happens to ordinary people trying to do the right thing during dangerous times?  A young Dutch couple hides a Jewish man in their home during the German occupation of The Netherlands during World War II in Comedy in a Minor Key. They manage to handle all the small difficulties that arise, but when the man sickens and dies, the matter of disposing of the body brings the biggest danger of exposure into their quiet lives.
