Researchers in the Dutch capital have recovered two pages from one of Anne Frank's diaries that contain passages on sexuality.
Later, possibly through fear of prying eyes or no longer liking what she had written, she covered them over with brown paper, only for them to be uncovered decades later.
The story is set in 1942 when a 13-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their Amsterdam home and went into hiding following the Nazis' occupation of Holland.
The Associated Press reports that Frank van Vree, the director of the Netherlands Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, commented, "Anyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be unable to suppress a smile".
Died the founder of "new journalism" of Tom Wolfe
Tom Wolfe had only one thing about him that was informal and unfussy in his later life, and that was his first name. In the collection Wolfe wrote, "The most important literature being written in America today is in nonfiction".
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'. In Paris they have big houses for that.
The Anne Frank House said the museum would make the pages available on its website, but only in Dutch due to copyright restrictions.
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 diary of Anne Frank is a world heritage object with great historical value, and this justifies research into it", the institution said.
In her diary, Anne chronicled her life in hiding until August 1944, when her family was most likely betrayed and sent to Nazi concentration camps.
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".
Anne then attempts to explain sex to an imaginary person, using the information she's learnt from her father, a friend and books. In her diary, she wrote about other jokes that were sexual in nature, discussed her changing body and menstruation, and explored her own budding sexual feelings toward members of the same and opposite sex. In 1998, five additional pages were released-pages that dealt with what Anne saw as the strained and false relationship between her parents.
