This article focuses on the intersections of media technology and narrative structures in Gerhard Roth's Der Stille Ozean. It considers how the novel adopts modes of perception from various media to represent fragments of a silent and silenced Austrian past: Austria's role in WWII and individuals' involvement in National Socialism. Roth's model of multiple perspectives creates the very possibility of narrating a silenced history.
