    Did you know that the Stasi Museum in Berlin is actually located in the former headquarters of the Stasi? Yeah, almost all the rooms you walk through were official Stasi offices, and they’ve barely changed since. It’s like stepping back in time and getting a real sense of the power and control wielded by the Stasi from 1950 to 1990. It’s pretty intense to think about what went on in those very rooms.
