It is the 4th of August, 1944. For three days, Miep (Dodie Heath) hasn't come by, and Kraler (Douglas Spencer) is in the hospital for an operation, so there is little to do but wait and pray they don't starve. As Anne and Peter stand at the attic window looking out at the clouds, they hear the sirens of yet another Gestapo truck. When the truck stops directly in front of their building, Anne and Peter engage in one desperate kiss. Downstairs, the others amass in the kitchen, fearing the worse. Suddenly the doorbell rings, then the pounding begins. Otto hands Margot and his wife their bags, and they wait for the Gestapo to break though the bookcase that conceals the Achterhuis. Otto says to everyone, 'For the past two years we have lived in fear; now we can live in hope.' In a voiceover, Anne reads the final entrance in her diary: 'And so it seems that our time here is over. They've given us a moment to get our things. We can each take a bag and whatever it will hold of clothing...nothing else. So, dear diary, it seems I must leave you behind. Goodbye for a while. P.S. Please please anyone...if you should find this diary, please keep it safe for me. I hope that...' The final scene is an epilogue that continues from where the prologue left off. Otto has retrieved Anne's diary. Miep explains that she left that day to go to the country to look for supplies and, when she got back, the Gestapo were already in the house. Kraler tells Otto that it was the thief who turned them in. Otto informs them that everyone -- his wife, the van Daans, Dussel, and Margot -- are dead and that, just yesterday, he learned about Anne's fate. In a final voiceover, Anne says, 'In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.' Otto adds: 'She puts me to shame.'
