Hidden pages from Anne Frank's diary published

Two unpublished pages of the' diary' of Anne Frank show their curiosity for sex

Dutch researchers examining her diary have discovered a secret section, replete with dirty jokes and a 13-year-old girl's naive comments about sex.

The pages were part of one of several diaries penned by the Jewish teenage diarist during her time hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam, the city's Anne Frank House wrote in a statement Tuesday.

The 13-year-old scribbled the pages on September 28, 1942 - less than three months after she and her family went into hiding from the Nazis in the secret annex of an Amsterdam home. "They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl".

The two pages are not the only time Frank jotted down dirty jokes or wrote about sexuality, although in later passages she treats the subjects more maturely.

One joke involves a man who fears his wife is cheating on him.

When the husband asks the naked man what he's doing there, Anne wrote, the naked man answers: "Believe it or not, I'm waiting for the tram". Later, researchers realized the underlying text was partly visible and modern software could probably decipher it.

The Jewish teenager apparently covered up the pages because she anxious that other people in her hideout would read them, as they contain a series of dirty jokes and her thoughts on sex education, said Ronald Leopold, director of Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.

"She starts with an imaginary person whom she is telling about sex, so she creates a kind of literary environment to write about a subject she's maybe not comfortable with", he said.

In addition to the jokes, Anne summarizes what a period is, describes the mechanics of sex in couched terms, and relays what she has heard of prostitution.

The pages' content had remained unknown for decades because Frank had erased them.

In 1944, the Frank family was discovered, arrested and sent to separate concentration camps.

She died at 15 in the Bergen-Belsen camp, along with her sister.

Otto Frank, the only family member to survive the Holocaust, returned to Amsterdam after the war.

Her diary was found after the war and would become one of the most read books in the world.
