The protection of the "Fuchsbau" by the MfS

Behind these windows of the head building 2 officers of the military defense of the state security had, Hauptabteilung I, also known as Administration 2000 in the NVA, had their official workrooms in the Fuchsbau.
Another "contact point" was in room 301 of the TO-02 bunker.
The FBZ / Fuchsbau command post was classified as a high-security object by the MfS.
Therefore, it is hard to imagine the enormous effort to effectively secure the outside of the object.
In the archives of the MfS there is a document of the Main Department I / LSK/LV/ Strausberg. "On the operational penetration of the surroundings of the FBZ".
The plan of measures contained therein alone sheds light on the working methods of secret services.

At this point, only a few excerpts from this document dated 3.4.1978:

...Compilation of personnel lists of the restaurants "Maxim Gorki", "Sportlerheim" and "Ratskeller", as well as the cemetery Fürstenwalde...
...unofficial use of an employee at the cemetery Fürstenwalde...

P.S.: The author of these pages has only after opening the archives of the MfS learned that also to his person "operative procedures" were opened.
It was about the permission to build a radio remote control transmitter,later about the use of a self-built computer in the service.
Further investigations were opened when applications were made for amateur radio and glider training.
Due to "high significance",an additional 2 informal staff members were activated.
The thing was classified finally however as harmless and thus resulted from it no disadvantages, if one refrains from the refusal of the requests....
