Because of the current situation and in order to support efforts to contain the spread of the new Coronavirus we decided until further notice to cancel all public services of the Stasi Records Archive. Events, tours through the archives and personal counceling on requesting records will not be possible starting immediately in Berlin and the 12 regional offices. Our library in Berlin is closed to the public starting Monday March 16 and our reading rooms in Berlin and the 12 regional branches will be closed starting March 17.
You can still get counseling over telephone (+49.30.2324-7000) if you have questions around access to personal records. Requesting records is possible through our website, for personal records and for media and research requests, with the necessary instructions. We are monitoring the situation and will update information as the development permits.
