However, he said it provides an early example of how Anne "creates a fictional situation that makes it easier for her to address the sensitive topics that she writes about". "The Anne Frank House on Tuesday revealed that it had managed to read the pages, which a then 13-year-old Anne wrote on September 28, 1942, and subsequently covered over with brown masking paper, keeping the pages" contents a tantalizing mystery for decades.

Anne Frank once taped over two pages in her diary with brown sticky paper, leaving a small puzzle as to what material the Jewish teenager, who had no idea of how famous her diary would later become, wanted to exclude.

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.

Miss Frank wrote her diary while she and her family went in hiding for more than two years, in a bid to escape from the Nazis during World War II. The statement said that the pages include four dirty jokes, some crossed out phrases and a text in which Anne Frank imagines herself teaching sexual education. Researchers uncovered the text by taking photos of the pages, backlit by a flash and then used image-processing software to decipher the words.

Frank Van Vree, director of the Netherlands Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, said the jokes are of the sort that are "classics among growing children". "They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all also an ordinary girl".

She also described a young woman getting her period around age 14 as "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married". The Frank family lived in a modest brick building from 1934 in the Dutch capital, after fleeing rising anti-Semitism in neighbouring Germany, until they went into hiding.

Her father Otto was the only member of the family to survive the war. The family went into hiding in July 1942 and remained there, provided with food and other essentials by a close-knit group of helpers, until August 4, 1944, when they were discovered and ultimately deported to Auschwitz. Anne Frank and her sister Margot died at Bergen-Belsen in 1945.
