  • Showing the new pages at Tuesday’s press conference

The Anne Frank House photographed the pages with a high- resolution camera and a light shining on them during a regular check on the diary's condition in 2016.

The pages contain four "dirty jokes" and an explanation of sex, contraception and prostitution, the ABC reports, which were covered with gummed pieces of brown paper when the diary was first found - presumably Anne's attempt to hide her risqué writing from her family. 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. 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 was 13 when she went into hiding from the Nazis with her family.

"It's a very cautious start to her becoming a writer", he said.

On October 3, 1942, she wrote: "Daddy is grumbling again and threatening to take away my diary".

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.

At the time, Frank was 12 years old and curious about sex and relationships like other children her age. She kept a diary throughout her time in hiding, and after her death, her father, Otto, published it in 1947.

From her writings it was clear "she had gleaned information on the subject of sexuality from her parents, especially her father, from her friend Jacqueline and from books", the foundation said.

"These - literally - uncovered texts bring the inquisitive and in many respects precocious teenager back into the foreground". She often went back through and added comments to previous journal entries.

Anne died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp three months before her 16th birthday, in 1945.

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.
