Anne Frank's dirty jokes revealed

The lost pages were reproduced after years of study

She wrote the recently discovered pages on September 28, 1942 at the age of 13, about three months after the Frank family went into hiding, and later covered them up with brown paper, the Associated Press reports.

Researchers using digital technology deciphered the writing on two pages of Anne Frank's diary that she had pasted over with brown masking paper, discovering four naughty jokes and a candid explanation of sex, contraception and prostitution.

"I sometimes imagine that someone would come to me and ask me to inform him about sexual subjects, how would I do that?", she wrote. The statement said that the pages include four dirty jokes, some crossed out phrases and a text in which Anne Frank imagines herself teaching sexual education.

Researchers were at pains to point out that it is not the first time that Frank wrote about sex in her diary.

Experts said the newly discovered text, when studied together with the rest of her diary, reveals more about Anne's development as a writer than it does about her interest in sex.

"The "dirty" jokes are classics among growing children", said Frank van Vree, director of the Netherlands' Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

The first was written in a series of small notebooks, from her 13th birthday on June 12, 1942, until August 1, 1944, and was intended strictly for herself. On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that".

Ronald Leopold, the executive director of the Anne Frank House, said the recent discoveries "bring us even closer" to Frank's development as a writer.

She also described a young woman getting her period around age 14 as "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married".

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

From her writings it was clear "she had gleaned information on the subject of sexuality from her parents, especially her father, from her friend Jacqueline and from books", the foundation said.

Anne wrote her diary while she and her family hid for more than two years.

The group went into hiding in July 1942, with helpers bringing them food and other essentials.

Her father Otto was the only member of the family to survive the war.

Anne died at Bergen-Belsen in Germany in early 1945, aged 15, less than a year after her capture and just before the end of the war.

The house where the Franks hid has been turned into museum, making it one of Amsterdam's most visited attractions.
