The exhibition follows a dual strategy – in one part, it is the visitor who is being watched by the Ministry for State Security; the second section invites him to take a look over the shoulder of the dark-suited men from the “sword and shield of the party.” Take advantage of this offer and learn more about their methods and activities.
After a view of the prison cell with original exhibits from Erfurt and Bautzen, you can experience an interrogation conducted by operatives of a Stasi remand prison. Hearing the questions of the interrogators on playback, you need to assume the position of the prisoner to hear the answers. Place your elbows in the required position and bring your hands to your ears. You will hear a second soundtrack relayed through the bones of your arm. The interrogation is in German.
