Book Summary

In 1989, the Berlin Wall fell; shortly afterwards the two Germanies reunited, and East Germany ceased to exist. In a country where the headquarters of the secret police can become a museum literally overnight, and one in 50 East Germans were informing on their countrymen and women, there are a thousand stories just waiting to get out. Anna Funder tells extraordinary tales from the underbelly of the former East Germany - she meets Miriam, who as a 16-year-old might have started World War III, visits the man who painted the line which became the Berlin Wall and gets drunk with the legendary Mik Jegger of the East, once declared by the authorities to his face to no longer to exist. Written with wit and literary flair, Stasiland provides a rivetting insight into life behind the wall.

    A collection of stories from behind the Berlin Wall by a woman who travelled there from Australia shortly after the wall fell.

    This book contains a number of stories from all different perspectives of those who worked, lived and suffered under the regime of the Stasi.

    The delving into each individual character was interesting and the stories they told were those that history books do not mention.
