The Stasi Museum in Leipzig, Germany. Â For those who have never heard of it, the Stasi was the East German Little brother to the Russian NKVD internal security Secret Police. Â The StasiÂ maintainedÂ a network of informers within both East and West Germany during the Cold War and also maintained dossiers onÂ almostÂ every German, even many in the West. Â In East Germany (GDR) the Stasi was the government organ responsible for internal security and ferreting out dissidents to the regime. Â They did this byÂ doing someÂ things that made the Â Nazi Gestapo look like amateurs.
Below are some of the photos I took in our hasty tour of the museum before it closed.
