Anne Frank's dirty jokes revealed

Showing the new pages at Tuesday’s press conference

Peter de Bruijn, a senior researcher at the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, one of the partners in the research, said that the newly uncovered pages are not significant for their sexual content - because Frank explores similar matters in other parts of the diary, often in even more explicit terms.

The Anne Frank House, a museum located in Frank's former hiding place, did not quote directly from the text it had recovered.

Hidden pages from Anne Frank's diary, revealing risque jokes and her personal musings on sex and prostitution, have been unveiled by researchers. Her diary entry was dated September 28, 1942, nearly three months after the Frank family went into hiding from the Nazis during World War II.

The pages also contain four risqué jokes that the teen herself described as "dirty".

"Anyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be..."

"Anne's diary texts show that she had gleaned information on the subject of sexuality from her parents, especially her father, from her friend Jacqueline and from books", the statement reads. He edited and published her writings in hiding after the war, making Anne Frank one of the world's most famous Holocaust victims.Anne Frank wrote the jokes on September 28, 1942, just three months after the family began their two-year stay at the hiding place. He recovered her diary, and had it published two years later.

In a passage on sex, Anne described how a young woman gets her period at 14, saying it's "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married".

Anne Frank went into hiding in a secret annexe of her father's business on 5 July 1942 - about a month after she received a diary for her 13th birthday.

He said the jokes "make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl".

On prostitution, she wrote: 'All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together. On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that".

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

In her diary, she wrote about other jokes that were sexual in nature, discussed her changing body and menstruation, and explored her own budding sexual feelings toward members of the same and opposite sex.
