Two unpublished pages of the' diary' of Anne Frank show their curiosity for sex

"The Anne Frank House on Tuesday revealed that it had managed to read the pages, which a then 13-year-old Anne wrote on September 28, 1942, and subsequently covered over with brown masking paper, keeping the pages" contents a tantalizing mystery for decades.

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.

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

The hidden texts, which are an integral part of the diaries, contain "five crossed-out phrases, four 'dirty" jokes and 33 lines about sex education and prostitution, the Anne Frank House said in a press release on Tuesday.

"Anyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be unable to suppress a smile", said Frank van Vree, the director of the Netherlands Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Anne and her family were betrayed and deported to Germany.

One joke involves a man who fears his wife is cheating on him.

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". They bring us even closer to the girl and the writer Anne Frank'. Later, researchers realized the underlying text was partly visible and modern software could probably decipher it.

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.

In 1942, the family went into hiding in secret rooms at the back of her father Otto Frank's office building.

But exactly when and exactly why Anne blocked out the pages will likely never be known.

Only two pages of Anne Frank's diary remain unread-or, remained.

Mr Leopold added that Anne wrote about the subject elsewhere in diary pages that already have been published.

"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. Anne and her sister died in Bergen-Belsen camp. Her father, the only family member to survive, published her diary in 1947.
