The minister, who was suffering from a kidney ailment, has been undergoing dialysis for the last one month. Jaitley could be out of action for about a month following surgery, a finance ministry official said.
The Anne Frank House Museum said at a presentation that it, and several Dutch historical institutes, were able to reproduce the lost pages after years of study by shining a light through them and photographing them in high resolution.
Anne Frank House director Ronald Leopold said the pages were not really scandalous or surprising, as Frank openly discusses her sexual maturation elsewhere in the diary.
As the months in hiding progress, her handwriting gradually matured from the hesitant block letters of a child to the flowing cursive style of an author who is gaining confidence as she hones her writing skills.
She also described a young woman getting her period around age 14 as "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married". On prostitution, Frank noted that "in Paris they have big houses for that". "Papa has been there". "As mattresses for the soldiers".
She had been in a hidden annexe for two months, hiding from the Nazi occupiers of Amsterdam with her family and another Jewish family. The family was provided with food and other essentials by a close-knit group of helpers, until 4 August 1944 when they were discovered and ultimately deported to Auschwitz.
