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.

Researchers in the Dutch capital have recovered two pages from one of Anne Frank's diaries that contain passages on sexuality.

"I'll use this spoiled page to write down "dirty" jokes", Anne wrote on 28 September 1942, according to the Anne Frank House.

Anne Frank's original diary, from the collection of the Anne Frank House Museum. 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.

The Anne Frank House Museum said the Jewish teenager appears to have covered up the pages with brown masking paper because she anxious that other people in her hideout would read them.

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

Leopold said the words are similar to other passages dealing with sex that already have been published in the multimillion-selling diary.

However, he said it 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".

At the time, Frank was 12 years old and curious about sex and relationships like other children her age.

After the war, Otto Frank had his daughter's diary published, and it went on to become a symbol of hope and resilience that has been translated into dozens of languages.

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

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.
