Hidden pages from Anne Frank's diary published

Dutch researchers read two covered pages of Anne Frank diary

Researchers have uncovered two pages of Anne Frank's diary masked over with brown paper that contain jokes and musings about sex, prostitution and contraception.

It turns out the pages contained four jokes about sex that Anne herself described as "dirty" and an explanation of women's sexual development, sex, contraception and prostitution.

The Anne Frank House Museum said the Jewish teenager appears to have covered up the pages with brown masking paper because she anxious that other people in her hideout would read them.

They said Anne Frank possibly wrote the text aged between 13 to 15, before she died in a Nazi concentration camp shortly before her 16th birthday.

She also wrote about prostitution. "Papa has been there". "Over eighteen months later she emphasised [sic] the important of good and thorough sex education, and she didn't understand why adults were so secretive about it".

"Anyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be unable to suppress a smile", he said.

The hidden texts were presented by the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, the Anne Frank House and the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

When the husband asks the naked man what he's doing there, Anne wrote, the naked man answers: "Believe it or not, I'm waiting for the tram".

Iran, EU try to save nuclear deal
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has acknowledged that the Iran nuclear deal "certainly has weaknesses" but says it should be preserved.

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

The hidden pages had been covered with gummed brown paper - apparently to hide her risqué writing from her family. "They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl".

She lived there with her family and their friends, the Van Pels, until their discovery two years later.

Instead, the "dirty" humor reveals a way to break the tension in an 800-square-foot space where movement and expression were curtailed for survival, said the Anne Frank House. "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".

Frank and her family hid from the Nazis in a secret annexe in a house in Amsterdam during World War II but were discovered in 1944.

The Anne Frank House addressed moral considerations in deciphering a text that its author did want read. She might have hidden these two original pages because she anxious that the other seven people in the annex would read her diary. Anne and her sister died in Bergen-Belsen camp.

"She was probably afraid that other people she was hiding with, either her father, her mother or the other family would discover her diary and would read these things", Leopold said.
