CIA agent during the Cold War

+++ The event will be postponed to autumn 2020. As soon as there is more information, we will announce it here and on our Facebook page. We are sorry for any inconveniences. +++


Olga Raue, a young woman from the DDR, works for the CIA, at first in East-Berlin, then in Moscow. Together with her husband and her brother-in-law, she establishes a spy ring, which is eventually discovered by the State Security. She is inprisoned and is allowed to leave the DDR in 1977. She had remained silent for years before finally talking to the writer Stefan Appelius. As a result, a book emerged about one of the biggest German espionage cases of Cold War – a story of dead letter boxes, secret codes and long years in prison, but also of love, hate, jealousy and political ideals in the fight against the system.
