Holocaust survivor Primo Levi resisted becoming a 'kapo' (a prisoner in charge of other prisoners) because he did not want to enter the 'grey zone' where he says that many of both the victims and perpetrators fell. It was easy to steal (for example) food from fellow prisoners to help one's self survive, but condenming the victim to death, or for a guard to 'look the other way' when a prisoner stole food, both of these fall into the grey zone.
