When I had a first glance to the GDR Stasi Prison, I felt shiver running through my body. And when I saw living conditions inside, that feeling didn’t go away. First of all, prisoners most often were innocent people. Moreover, according to the guide, prisoners should follow ridiculous rules, for example, sitting without any leaning. Finally, prisoners didn’t have connection with the outside world because of thick glass windows. That increased impression that the prisoners were only the victims of the regime in GDR.
