Life Under Occupation and Arrest

Sullerot describes her 1942 Arrest for listening to British radio:

“Two hours later, the gendarmes came and arrested me. The charges were unpatriotic remarks and listening to the BBC. They arrested me at home. I was barely sixteen. They questioned my classmates, my professors. Most said nothing but two related that I held subversive ideas, that I listened to British radio. Even though it was forbidden, we always listened and I told my classmates what I had heard. So you see how a young girl’s life was completely changed. (Sullerot 11)”
