• The GDR existed for more than 40 years. During that time an unjust regime had developed in eastern Germany and found expression in institutions such as the prison hospital of the Ministry for State Security (MfS). This hospital “accommodated” wounded refugees, severely ill prisoners or prisoners, who went into hunger strike.
    In the time between May 21st 1959 and December 7th 1989 there have been 2,694 detainees, 377 of them have been to the prison several times.
    The staff consisted of members of the State Security Service (Stasi), who closely cooperated with different departments of the state – medical confidentiality was not given.
