In East Germany, there was one stasi agent or informer for every 63 citizens, records show.
A brilliant look into the lives of the 1980s East German stasi (Secret Police) and the civilians they spy and eavesdrop on.
Remember the stasi, the secret police who operated in East Germany when it was a communist state?
Either way, expect the future of agencies like the NSA and FBI to look less like the stasi and more like Stuxnet.
We still have thousands of stasi victims who, 20 years after reunification, want to learn the truth from their files.
In 1984, Wollenberger signed a stasi contract agreeing to inform on Lengsfeld and her son from a previous marriage.
It was then that Vera Lengsfeld learned that that the stasi informer code named “Donald” was her husband, Knud Wollenberger.
In the aftermath, six million files on East German citizens were discovered in stasi archives.
stasi added it's a "boon for the out-of-shape and perhaps a giant economic loss for high-end gyms, particularly in Brooklyn."
