Museums publish two hidden pages from Anne Frank's diary

Museums publish two hidden pages from Anne Frank's diary

Her diary entry was dated September 28, 1942, nearly three months after the Frank family went into hiding from the Nazis during World War II.

Anne Frank was a typical teenager in at least one way - she told dirty jokes and had strong opinions about sex, birth control and prostitution. which she included in her famous diary. In 2016, conservators took photos of the condition of the diary during a routine check. It is unclear when the text might be available in English, the Times reports.

Anne Frank's original diary, from the collection of the Anne Frank House Museum. The entries were dated 28 September 1942. "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.

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

It's not clear when Frank wrote each portion of the newly discovered text.

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".

Another Picasso owned by Steve Wynn damaged
Wynn, 76, stepped down this year as chief executive of Wynn Resorts after allegations of sexual harassment, which he has denied. However, the most expensive work of art - a Pablo Picasso piece worth $70 million - has been damaged.

"They bring us even closer to the girl and the writer Anne Frank".

Frank's candid words on sex didn't make it into the first published diary, which appeared in English in 1952.

Anne, who died in a Nazi concentration camp before she turned 16, would have written the passages aged between 13 and 15. These were only partially restored in 1986, when a critical edition of her diary was published.

The Frank family, originally from Frankfurt in Germany, had left for the Netherlands when the Nazis gained control in the 1930s. The inclusion of the pages in a biography of Frank sparked acopyright furor, and they were only released in a new critical edition of the book in 2001.

The Anne Frank House said the museum would make the pages available on its website, but only in Dutch due to copyright restrictions.

Leopold and a senior researcher on the project, Peter de Bruijn, both expressed to the Times the value of the uncovered diary pages for offering more insight into Anne Frank's development as a writer rather than for the content she wrote about.
