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.

Researchers in Amsterdam have uncovered the words on two hidden pages of Anne Frank's diary in which the German-Jewish teen explored sexuality, dirty jokes, prostitution, and puberty.

In an interview, Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House, said, "It is really interesting and adds meaning to our understanding of the diary".

Frank penned the two pages on September 28, 1942, less than three months after she and her family began hiding from Nazis in a secret attic during World War II. "I'll use this spoiled page to write down "dirty" jokes", she wrote-then listed four, along with an imagined lesson on sex education and some information on prostitutes.

"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", Bruijn told the Times. In her diary, for example, she addressed entries to a fictional friend named Kitty.

"The diary of Anne Frank is a world heritage object with great historical value, and this justifies research into it", the institution said.

In a snippet of the text, she explains how women get their periods around 14 years of age, and said it "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married".

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.

The pages' content had remained unknown for decades because Frank had erased them. "Papa has been there".

By shining a light through the paper and photographing the pages in high resolution, researchers have managed to read the text on two covered up-pages of the diary.

After the war, Otto Frank had his daughter's diary published, and it went on to become a symbol of hope and resilience that has been translated into dozens of languages. Though Anne herself edited her diary with an eye to publication, the book-released eight years after her death from typhus in theBergen-Belsen concentration camp at age 15-contained additional cuts.

Her only surviving family member, her father, published her diary in 1947.

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