Researchers uncover Anne Frank's 'dirty jokes' in her diary

Researchers uncover Anne Frank's 'dirty jokes' in her diary

"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.

Anne wrote her diary while in hiding from the Nazis with her family during World War II.

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 Museum said at a presentation that it, and several Dutch historical institutes, were able to reproduce the lost pages after years of study by shining a light through them and photographing them in high resolution. In Paris they have big houses for that.

The researchers used digital photography techniques to decipher pages that Anne had masked with glued brown paper some time after writing them on September 23, 1942. 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.

Experts on Anne's diary said the newly discovered text, when studied together with the rest of her diary, reveals more about Anne's development as a writer than it does about her interest in sex.

He was arrested the next day after being discovered in the property by the singer's assistant. And in 2013, there were two separate attempted break-ins at her LA home.

The Huygens Institute of Netherlands History was also a partner in the project.

In a snippet of the text, she explains how women get their periods around 14 years of age, and said it "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married". Anne Frank and her sister Margot died at Bergen-Belsen in 1945.

"The diary of Anne Frank is a world heritage object with great historical value, and this justifies research into it", the institution said.

Her father, Otto Frank managed to survive the Holocaust and published his daughter's diary in 1947, in hopes it would become a revelation to the agony faced by Jews. That the pages existed was already known, but she had pasted the two original diary pages with brownish paper.

The house where the Franks hid was turned into a museum that is one of Amsterdam's most popular tourist attractions. 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.
