Hidden pages uncovered in Anne Frank's diary contain dirty jokes

Hidden pages uncovered in Anne Frank's diary contain dirty jokes

The Jewish teenager apparently covered up the pages because she anxious that other people in her hideout would read them, as they contain a series of dirty jokes and her thoughts on sex education, said Ronald Leopold, director of Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. 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. "The "dirty" jokes are classics among growing children", said Frank van Vree, director of NIOD.

The humor's a little lost in translation, but one is about German soldiers banging Dutch women, and others are about men catching their wives banging other men. and men with ugly wives.

Writing about the decision to publish pages that Anne clearly wanted to keep hidden, the museum said that her diary - a Unesco-registered world heritage document - held significant academic interest.

They photographed the pages, backlit by a flash, and then used image-processing software to decipher the words, which were jumbled with the writing on the other side of the pages. "At the end she explicitly names her father, Otto, who had been in Paris and saw houses with prostitutes", the Anne Frank Housewrites. "Papa has been there". "All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together".

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




"I'll use this spoiled page to write down "dirty" jokes", she wrote on a page with a handful of crossed-out phrases - and jotted down four dirty jokes she knew. This time, advanced imaging technology revealed the text beneath the pages.

"Anne Frank writes about sexuality in a disarming way".

On July 6, 1942, they retreated into the secret annexe of another home as the Nazis were rounding up Jewish families following their invasion of the Netherlands in 1940.

Anne's father was the only member of the Frank family to survive. But to those who have read Frank's diary, the real surprise is not that she addressed sexual topics-it's that there's more to discover about a 15-year-old murdered 73 years ago.

The house where the Franks hid was turned into a museum that is one of Amsterdam's most popular tourist attractions.
