Breaking the silence

The deepest traces of war are left in souls. The tale "Briseurs de silence" presented by Radio France has been inspired by the Israeli organisation "Shovrim Shtika", (silence breakers), which collects the testimonies of Israeli soldiers telling what they have done during their military service in the occupied territories. The radio piece recalls the banality of small deeds causing deep injuries, often invisible, and yet severe.
"Silence breakers" gives a voice to shame and guilt, in a disturbingly unemotional tone, not through the victims' voices, but through the soldiers', in order to uncover the horror in a region living under war conditions.
