Bundesarchiv, Koblenz Bildarchiv

Bundesbeauftragter für die Unterlagen des Ministeriums für Staatssicherheit (BStU) Zentrales Archiv Berlin (ZA), Berlin Researchers are not allowed to view catalogues at this Stasi archive. Instead they must try, with the help of a case worker who is limited in what help he or she can offer, to guess which collections might exist and might be relevant to the topic at hand. The following departmental collections are those from which the author received documents. This list may nor may not reflect the organization of the currently inaccessible catalogues. In essence, what follows is an improvised catalogue produced from experience.

The list below includes the department name, the abbreviation used in the endnotes (if any), and a departmental description. The departmental descriptions are summaries of information contained in BStU, ed., Die Organisationsstruktur des Ministeriums für Staatssicherheit 1989 (Berlin: BStU, 1995), or OMS. This is the best guide currently available to the function of individual departments. Unfortunately (for this study), OMS primarily describes the status of the various departments as of 1989; however, the contents of iles from the late 1960s and early 1970s suggest that the descriptions of departments from 1989 apply to the earlier time period as well.
