On June 6, the D-Day invasion finally comes. This excites everyone and Anne dares to wonder if they might be liberated that year, 1944. Margot says that she and Anne may be able to go back to school in September. Anne records new developments in the invasion with great excitement. Her fifteenth birthday passes, and she is feeling happier.

The end of the book is all the more devastating because of the war developments and Anne's optimism. The invasion finally comes, and it is a smashing success. Further evidence that the Germans are losing their hold comes with the assassination attempt. Even the German people, it seems, no longer believe in Hitler's dream.
