  • Showing the new pages at Tuesday’s press conference

"Anyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be... They make it clear that Anne, with all her gifts, was above all an ordinary girl", he added, according to the Associated Press. They were betrayed and arrested by the Nazis in August 1944. 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.

She also related this joke: "A man had a very ugly wife and he didn't want to have relations with her".

When the husband asks the naked man what he's doing there, Anne wrote, the naked man answers: "Believe it or not, I'm waiting for the tram".

The pages were first discovered in 2016 in her first diary with a red-checked cover.

Anne Frank House director Ronald Leopold said the pages were not really scandalous or surprising, as Frank openly discusses her sexual maturation elsewhere in the diary.


Leopold said the newly deciphered material 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". "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.

"The diary of Anne Frank is a world heritage object with great historical value, and this justifies research into it", the institution said. In 1998, five additional pages were released-pages that dealt with what Anne saw as the strained and false relationship between her parents. 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, who died in a Nazi concentration camp before she turned 16, would have written the passages aged between 13 and 15.

Otto Frank, the only family member to survive the Holocaust, returned to Amsterdam after the war.

The two pages are not the only time Frank jotted down dirty jokes or wrote about sexuality, although in later passages she treats the subjects more maturely. It is now considered one of the most important documents to have emerged from the Holocaust, and has been read by millions of people and translated into 60 languages.
