  • Showing the new pages at Tuesday’s press conference

In 2016, the diary was rephotographed by the Anne Frank House and the hidden writing was deciphered.

In her diary, Anne Frank told vivid impressions of her experiences. Her diary entry was dated September 28, 1942, nearly three months after the Frank family went into hiding from the Nazis during World War II.

Her father Otto was the only member of the family to survive the war.

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.

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. Because Frank's diaries are so susceptible to damage, they typically only get inspected once every 10 years and those doing the job avoid touching the pages, according to the New York Times.

On October 3, 1942, she wrote: "Daddy is grumbling again and threatening to take away my diary. From now on, I'm going to hide it". During her time in hiding, she wrote two versions of the diary.

"I sometimes imagine that someone would come to me and ask me to inform him about sexual subjects, how would I do that?", she wrote.

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 often went back through and added comments to previous journal entries.

Defending the decision to release the newly-found texts, the foundation said "over the decades Anne has grown to become the worldwide symbol of the Holocaust, and Anne the girl has increasingly faded into the background".

Researches managed to uncover the text using digital techniques, by shining light through the pages and photographing them in high resolution.

The pages were part of one of several diaries penned by the Jewish teenage diarist during her time hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam, the city's Anne Frank House wrote in a statement Tuesday.

Anne died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp three months before her 16th birthday, in 1945.
