Researchers unravel content of unknown pages of diary of Anne Frank

Researchers unravel content of unknown pages of diary of Anne Frank

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.

The pages contain jokes, similar anecdotes also appearing elsewhere in the diary, and Anne's view of sexual education.

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.

The pages' content had remained unknown for decades because Frank had erased them.

In an interview, Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House, said, "It is really interesting and adds meaning to our understanding of the diary".

Researchers were at pains to point out that it is not the first time that Frank wrote about sex in her diary.

"She starts with an imaginary person whom she is telling about sex, so she creates a kind of literary environment to write about a subject she's maybe not comfortable with", he said. Given the great public and academic interest we have decided, together with the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, to publish these texts and share them with the world. The Anne Frank House said it used new "image processing technology" to decipher the covered pages.The Franks were caught by the Nazis in 1944.

First Muslim superhero Ms Marvel is 'on the way'
Speaking to the BBC , Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spilled the tea on some "plans" to introduce Ms Marvel into the MCU. The move is significant as it means Marvel is planning to introduce its first Muslim superhero.

Anne, who died in a Nazi concentration camp before she turned 16, would have written the passages aged between 13 and 15.

Her diary was found after the war and would become one of the most read books in the world.

A video shows the text underneath two taped off pages from Anne Frank's diary during a press conference at The Anne Frank Foundation's office in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

In the passage on sex, Anne described how a young woman gets her period around age 14, saying that it is "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married".

Her only surviving family member, her father, published her diary in 1947.

The Anne Frank House, a museum located in Frank's former hiding place, did not quote directly from the text it had recovered.

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.
