Researchers Discover Dirty Jokes in Anne Frank's Diary

Researchers Discover Dirty Jokes in Anne Frank's Diary

The two newly revealed pages were written in Frank's first diary, with a red plaid cover, on September 28, 1942, when she was 13 years old.

"The diary of Anne Frank is a world heritage object with great historical value, and this justifies research into it", the institution said.

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.

She also addressed prostitution, writing, "All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together". On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that". "Papa has been there". "Over eighteen months later she emphasised [sic] the important of good and thorough sex education, and she didn't understand why adults were so secretive about it".

"[The pages] bring us even closer to the girl and the writer Anne Frank", Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House Museum, said at the press conference.

"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", Bruijn told the Times.

"Anyone who reads the passages that have now been discovered will be unable to suppress a smile".

Thanks to modern image processing technology, the writing from 1942 was uncovered, and four "dirty jokes" appeared. Her father, the only family member to survive, published her diary in 1947.

SpaceX's first " Block 5 " Falcon 9 rocket launches Bangabandhu Satellite-1 for the government of Bangladesh on May 11, 2018. By now, SpaceX landing one of its Falcon 9 rockets (or even landing two, for that matter) is barely worthy of a headline.

Instead, the "dirty" humor reveals a way to break the tension in an 800-square-foot space where movement and expression were curtailed for survival, said the Anne Frank House.

Dutch museums on Tuesday published two pages of Anne Frank's diary that had previously been hidden behind a layer of sticky brown paper. "Anne is the Holocaust's most well-known victim because her diary describes her inner life and her hopes for the future in the midst of the Nazi onslaught".

Anne wrote in her diary until she and her family were discovered by the Nazis in 1944 and deported to Auschwitz.

According to The Anne Frank House, the teenager often reread and edited her diary.

It's unclear why she chose to cover up these specific pages, but she mentions throughout her writings she was anxious about people reading her private thoughts.

She died at 15 in the Bergen-Belsen camp, along with her sister.

One of the jokes reads: "Do you know why the German Wehrmacht girls are in the Netherlands?".
