Chapter Summaries & Analyses

Part 6: “8 August 1944”

Chapter 96 Summary: “Someone in the House”

Marie-Laure freezes as she realizes that someone is moving about downstairs. The person limps; it is the German sergeant major who cornered her in the grotto. She takes her things—the small house containing the stone, her two cans of food, a knife, a brick, and her cane—and retreats to the attic whose entrance is hidden behind the wardrobe.

Chapter 97 Summary: “The Death of Walter Bernd”

The engineer Walter Bernd dies and Volkheimer buries him in a corner under piled rubble. Werner works on the radio; although the transceiver is broken beyond repair, he might be able to fix the radio receiver. Focused on the task before him, Werner does not despair or think about his situation.

Chapter 98 Summary: “Sixth-floor Bedroom”

Von Rumpel finds the model of Saint-Malo in Marie-Laure’s room. He believes the stone will be hidden inside the model.
