while escaping from the Nazis because the baby was crying?

Not the made-for-TV thing.

but she smothered the baby while running from the Warsaw Ghetto, after the uprising.

EDIT: There was conversation in "The Pianist" with a woman who had smothered her baby to avoid detection, but had been found anyway. While the main character and his family are waiting to be deported, they are listening to the mother cry about it. Not sure if that is the one you mean.

There was a scene in another movie (probably the "made for TV" thingie) where you actually see a mother killing her child. I think the name of that movie was "Holocaust".

5. That was the last episode of MASH.
Those scenes were very difficult to watch.

8. "The Pianist"
also had a scene -- there is a woman sobbing -- and someone complains about her hysterical sobbing. Then we learn that the woman tried to silence her child when the Nazis were searching for Jews and the child died.

This movie is based on a true story about the Polish Pianist and composer Wladyslaw Szpilman. Roman Polanski directed the film and Polanski also escaped from the Warsaw ghetto at age 7.

Also as mentioned this was in an episode from MASH -- perhaps taken from the Szpilman autobiography of his experiences during WWII.

9. I think it was an older movie...
I'm pretty sure it was made in the 80's or 90's. All I remember was there were a bunch of people trying to escape together and the woman had concealed her pregnancy so she wouldn't be killed, but then when they try to escape the baby cries and the woman smothers the baby and then later she kills herself out of grief.
