With Sandra Czech (UOKG) and Torsten Wenzel (Stasi documents archive)
Today the research workshop presents the research project “Forced labor in the GDR prison system”. The work is intended, among other things, to advance the question of compensation for political prisoners who did forced labor in GDR prisons.
With a reading stage and research workshop, the Federal Archives - Stasi Documents Archive will provide current insights into research and work with the Stasi documents in November and December 2023. As part of the reading stage, new publications on the topics of state security, the GDR and dictatorship will be presented in the former Stasi headquarters. In the new format of the research workshop, projects that were researched in the Stasi documents archive are presented. Researchers and archive employees report on the process of accessing files from their perspective and explain methods and research strategies.
