Up until 1990, the Stasi headquarters in Berlin-Lichtenberg were the main offices of the Ministry of State Security, the East German secret police. Up to seven thousand Stasi employees worked here, and the Stasi minister Erich Mielke had his office in House 1 from 1962 to 1989. The building now accommodates the Stasi Museum with the exhibition "State Security in the SED Dictatorship”. Erich Mielke’s historical office rooms form the core of the museum.
