Anne Frank Wrote About Sex And Prostitution In Newly Revealed Pages

The two newly revealed pages were written in Frank's first diary, with a red plaid cover, on September 28, 1942, when she was 13 years old. "The "dirty" jokes are classics among growing children". But today it was revealed what lied behind the covered up pages.

Anne wrote her diary while she and her family spent two years in hiding in an Amsterdam canal-house, in an attempt to avoid Nazi occupiers during World War II.

It's unclear why she made a decision to cover up these specific pages, but she mentions throughout her writings she was anxious about people reading her private thoughts.

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".

"I sometimes imagine that someone might come to me and ask me to inform him about sexual matters", Frank wrote in Dutch.

Announcing their discovery on Tuesday, the Anne Frank Foundation believes the text helped the teenager express her sexuality.

Mystery has swirled around the two pages of Anne Frank's diary where brown paper was pasted over the writing.

He said: "They bring us even closer to the girl and the writer Anne Frank".

The family went into hiding in July 1942 and remained there, provided with food and other essentials by a close-knit group of helpers, until August 4 1944, when they were discovered and ultimately deported to Auschwitz.

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.

"That Anne Frank had risqué jokes in her diary speaks to her humanity", Sara Bloomfield, director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, told NPR. The passages show how she "creates a fictional situation that makes it easier for her to address the sensitive topics that she writes about", he said.

She died aged 15 at Bergen-Belson concentration camp in 1945. "At the end she explicitly names her father, Otto, who had been in Paris and saw houses with prostitutes", the Anne Frank Housewrites.

A spokeswoman from the Anne Frank House said the newly discovered text would be available only in Dutch. 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. "Anne is the Holocaust's most well-known victim because her diary describes her inner life and her hopes for the future in the midst of the Nazi onslaught".
