Major Richter rejects Hauptsmann Reinicke's suggestion that reprisals be taken until Peter gives himself up as he wants to court local goodwill. Peter's mother tells Oberleutnant Kluge that Peter would never try to escape as he is her carer but Kluge is suspicious and purposely falls against Peter to prove that he has a wounded shoulder. Reinicke antagonizes librarian Cecily Brown by placing several innocuous books on a banned list. They struggle over a book each wishes to keep hold of and the Nazi falls and cuts his head. Cecily is arrested and Richter agrees to let her go if she apologizes to Reinicke but,despite Dr. Martel's urgings,she refuses on principle and is sentenced to two years in a French prison.
