Relocation of our Museum
Because House 1, where our museum was located for the past 20 years will be reconstructed and renovated over the next one and a half years, the Stasimuseum has moved to a temporary quarters.
Now the museum is situated in house 22 on the opposite side of house 1. The new location is a historical place, too: it was the former general’s canteen, also called “General’s Hill” by the Stasi employees.
Unfortunately Erich Mielke’s offices can’t be visited during the reconstruction of house 1. But in order to provide an impression of the rooms from which Erich Mielke controlled the Stasi we show the original furnishing of his office. Other offices and the conference room can be seen on photographs.

Tradition-work in MfS
In this part of the exhibition items are shown that were used in the framework of "tradition work" and that were used as gifts on several occasions within the Stasi or between Stasi and the state security services of the other Eastern Bloc countries or between Stasi and it's "partners of political-operative cooperation".
Tradition work was part of the ideological education in the Stasi and aimed at the creation of a "Chekist personality" with traits like an "unconditional loyalty to the working class and its Marxist-Leninist party".
The political-ideological education was a key part of the East-German educational system too. In all subjects children and juveniles were indoctrinated. As "socialist personalities" the SED wanted them to internalize the belief system of the communist ideology and to support the political system by any means.
