At the height of the Cold War, Ulrike Poppe just might have been the most surveilled woman in the world. But it was only after the wall fell that things got really interesting.

Be sure to check out Luisa Beck’s reporting on all things Germany at The Washington Post as well as the work of reporter Andrew Curry, whose article in Wired first got us interested in Ulrike’s story.. And if you’re interested in Stasi Records Agency, can you visit their English-language website to learn more.
