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.
