He edited and published her writings in hiding after the war, making Anne Frank one of the world's most famous Holocaust victims.Anne Frank wrote the jokes on September 28, 1942, just three months after the family began their two-year stay at the hiding place.

It is not known why she covered up the two pages with brown paper, but several times in her diaries she voices fears that others might pry into her writings.

Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House, said of the hidden pages, "Anne Frank writes about sexuality in a disarming way". The pages include 4 dirty jokes.

Frank's inclusion of sexual material in her diaries makes sense-during her 25 months of hiding, she matured from a young girl into a young woman and even conducted a brief romantic relationship with Peter van Pels, a boy who hid with the Frank family.

Researchers were at pains to point out that it is not the first time that Frank wrote about sex in her diary.

Laurel or Yanny? This audio clip is driving the internet insane
Attention is the last thing needed! "Watched this for 5 min and heard yanny...watched it 5 min later and I hear laurel". If you turn the volume very low, there will be practically no bass and you will hear Yanny.

They photographed the pages, backlit by a flash, and then used image-processing software to decipher the words, which were hard read because they were jumbled up with the writing on the reverse sides of the pages. 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. Given the great public and academic interest we have decided, together with the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, to publish these texts and share them with the world.

About prostitution, Anne wrote: "All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together". Anne and her sister died in Bergen-Belsen camp.

Defending the decision to release the newly-found texts, the foundation said "over the decades Anne has grown to become the worldwide symbol of the Holocaust, and Anne the girl has increasingly faded into the background".

"At the end she explicitly names her father, Otto, who had been in Paris and saw houses with prostitutes", the Anne Frank Housewrites.

The house where the Franks hid has been turned into museum, making it one of Amsterdam's most visited attractions.
