In the German Democratic Republic (GDR), maps for the general public were freed from any "confidential information" and featured distortions of direction and scale, as well as inaccuracies of up to ?3 km. The purpose of this collection is to illuminate both the Ministry for State Security's influence on mapping in the GDR and the ulterior motives behind its practices. Historians, cartographers, and geographers, including expert contemporary witnesses, explore these topics from a variety of viewpoints.

"Dagmar Unverhau" is head of the Department in the Federal Office in united Germany in charge of the East German Secret Police files.
