Only Anne Frank's father, Otto, survived the Holocaust.

"The only element that might be interesting from the point of view about her development as a writer and as a teenager is the fact that she's creating, kind of, fiction" he said.

When Anne Frank was arrested in the "secret annex" she and her family had hidden in between 1942 and 1944, she had to leave her beloved diary behind. He said these pages were important because they show Frank's first foray into trying to write in a more literary tone.

The deciphering was done by researchers from the Anne Frank museum, the Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Huygens Institute of Netherlands History.

Brown paper had been used to cover the two pages in Anne's first diary, but digital and image processing technology was used to decipher their contents.

With new photo-imaging software, researchers at the Anne Frank House, in conjunction with the two other Dutch institutes Leopold mentioned, were able to see through the concealment.

In a snippet of the text, she explains how women get their periods around 14 years of age, and said it "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married".

And about prostitution, she observed, "All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together".

"I'll use this spoiled page to write down "dirty" jokes", Anne wrote on 28 September 1942, according to the Anne Frank House. On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that". "Papa has been there".

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

One joke involves a man who fears his wife is cheating on him. The family went into hiding in July 1942 and remained there, provided with food and other essentials by a close-knit group of helpers, until August 4, 1944, when they were discovered and ultimately deported to Auschwitz.

Anne died at Bergen-Belsen in Germany in early 1945, aged 15, less than a year after her capture and just before the end of the war.

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.
