The building on the 'Runde Ecke' (round corner) in Leipzig was for many years a tool of oppression in the former East Germany.
On 4 December 1989 this Leipzig Stasi HQ was occupied by 'Monday demonstrators' in what proved to be a decisive moment in the peaceful revolution. Today the building houses the 'Runde Ecke' memorial site – a museum that looks back at the history, structure and methods of the GDR's secret police in its permanent exhibition 'Stasi – Power and Banality'.
