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.
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.
The Anne Frank House photographed the pages with a high- resolution camera and a light shining on them during a regular check on the diary's condition in 2016. "They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl".
The diary of Anne Frank is the content of a diary book that Anne received from her parents on her 13th birthday in 1942. The Anne Frank House said it used new "image processing technology" to decipher the covered pages.The Franks were caught by the Nazis in 1944.
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.
With regards to 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.
Frank also noted that her father had told her about prostitutes.
Only Anne's father, Otto Frank, survived the war.
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".

WTO rules European Union failed to stop subsidies on some Airbus aircraft
It is anticipated that USA tariffs will be authorized up to the amount of annual harm this market-distorting tactic is causing. Shares of Airbus reversed earlier gains to trade down as much as 1.8 percent immediately after the ruling was published.
The deciphering was done by researchers from the Anne Frank museum, the Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Huygens Institute of Netherlands History.
The hidden pages had been covered with gummed brown paper - apparently to hide her risqué writing from her family.
"Like every adolescent she is curious about this subject", said Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House.
She lived there with her family and their friends, the Van Pels, until their discovery two years later.
In the two years that Frank hid from the Nazis, she wrote about hunger and fear of being discovered, but also celebrity gossip, arguments with her mother and her first kiss.
The Diary of a Young Girl became one of the world's most widely read books, available in more than 70 languages.
The Anne Frank House addressed moral considerations in deciphering a text that its author did want read.
She died aged 15 at Bergen-Belson concentration camp in 1945.
Writing about the decision to publish pages that Anne clearly wanted to keep hidden, the museum said that her diary - a Unesco-registered world heritage document - held significant academic interest.
