The Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial (Gedenkstätte Berlin-Hohenschönhausen) hosts guided tours through the former political prison operated by the East German Communist Ministry of State Security, better known as the Stasi. The prison was in operation until 1990 and was used by the GDR to oppress and torture political activists. It was opened to the public in 1994, after the reunification of Germany. Guided tours of the former prison are led by historians and former political prisoners themselves, so a visit will definitely leave an impression.
