Researchers using digital editing techniques have deciphered the writing on two pages of Anne Frank's diary that she had covered over with brown masking paper, discovering four risque jokes and a candid explanation of sex, contraception and prostitution.
The pages contain jokes, similar anecdotes also appearing elsewhere in the diary, and Anne's view of sexual education.
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.
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. "They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl". 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.
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. On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that".
"Over the decades Anne has grown to become the worldwide symbol of the Holocaust, and Anne the girl has increasingly faded into the background", it said in a statement.
"Anne Frank writes about sexuality in a disarming way".

Anne Frank House museum executive director Ronald Leopold, says that 'like every adolescent she is curious about this subject [of sex]'. "The "dirty" jokes are classics among growing children", said Frank van Vree, director of NIOD.
She lived there with her family and their friends, the Van Pels, until their discovery two years later. "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".
She had been in a hidden annexe for two months, hiding from the Nazi occupiers of Amsterdam with her family and another Jewish family.
The Anne Frank House addressed moral considerations in deciphering a text that its author did want read. That the pages existed was already known, but she had pasted the two original diary pages with brownish paper.
"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.
After the group was discovered and deported, and Frank perished in Bergen-Belsen, Otto Frank, her father and the only surviving member of the family, edited and published his daughter's writing.
