War and Silence
L. Annette Binder’s novel The Vanishing Sky and Sandell Morse's memoir The Spiral Shell both explore the experience of ordinary Europeans during WW2. Though Annette’s book is set in Germany and Sandell’s in France, the books highlight some of the surprising similarities in how people experienced the war in both countries.

This program gives viewers the historical background behind the books, including anecdotes about the real people who inspired the stories, and outlines some of the similarities and differences between the experiences of civilians in Germany and in France who struggled — with varying degrees of success — to survive and to navigate the demands of their regimes. The program also explores why decent people sometimes falter when confronted by evil. The authors discuss how these stories still have important lessons to teach people today.

This program will be recorded.
