Disguised as a holiday complex belonging to the Leipzig water supply and sewage treatment, this bunker was built between 1968 and 1972, as the former emergency centre of the district Stasi commander. The bunker in Machern was a secretly-created complex, designed to maintain the Stasi leadership’s hold on power, even in exceptional circumstances.
