The word "integrity" means something like "honesty" or "sticking to your convictions."  So what the question is asking you is whether this book shows that people will give up their values and honesty easily.

I think that it does not show this.  Both Julia and Winston, for example, have not given up their convictions even though they have lived so long in a society that tries to destroy those convictions.  In Winston's case, he will not give up his integrity (won't betray Julia) until faced with the ultimate (for him) torture.

So my topic sentence would be "1984 shows that human integrity is very hard to undermine because the society has tried very hard to undermine this integrity and has not completely succeded.
