This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Silence of the Sea by Vercors, which tells the story of an old man and his niece who show their resistance by refusing to speak to the German officer they have to accommodate, even though he is an educated young man who dreams of a reconciliation between the two countries. The novel was secretly published during the Occupation in France and quickly became a symbol of mental resistant against the Germans. The hard-hitting novel was adapted for television and the programme was shown immediately after the end of World War II.
