There are over 40 million copies printed in 70 languages all detailing the inner thoughts of the "inquisitive and in many respects precocious", Jewish 13-year-old, who was kept in hiding/captivity with her family during Nazi occupation of Amsterdam. Later, researchers realized the underlying text was partly visible and modern software could probably decipher it.

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.

The Jewish teenager apparently covered up the pages because she anxious that other people in her hideout would read them, as they contain a series of dirty jokes and her thoughts on sex education, said Ronald Leopold, director of Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Those passages were censored by her father before the diary was first published in 1947 but became available in more recent unabridged editions.

Brown paper was pasted over a couple pages by Anne herself, adn for decades what she wrote was hidden.

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".

Announcing their discovery on Tuesday, the Anne Frank Foundation believes the text helped the teenager express her sexuality. "The "dirty" jokes are classics among growing children".

"I'll use this spoiled page to write down "dirty" jokes", Anne wrote on September 28, 1942, just two months after she went into hiding.

Regarding sex, Frank talked about how when a young woman gets her period around the age of 14, 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".

With regards to prostitution, she wrote: All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together.

D'Antoni was asked if he thinks the Warriors have seen a team as talented and risky as the Rockets are this season. For Golden State it's familiar territory but this will be a whole new experience for most of Houston's roster.

The Anne Frank House photographed the pages with a high- resolution camera and a light shining on them during a regular check on the diary's condition in 2016. On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that".

Frank and her family hid in a cramped secret annexe above a canal-side warehouse from July 1942 to August 1944, along with four other Jews. Anne died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945, aged 15.

Otto Frank, the only family member to survive the Holocaust, returned to Amsterdam after the war.
