Focusing largely on the roles of Sascha Anderson and Rainer Schedlinski, the Stasi's two key Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter in the Prenzlauer Berg, Lewis examines the development of the organization's involvement in the GDR's alternative culture.
In 1968 the Stasi changed the classification of its informers, eliminating the title of GI, calling them instead a more benign Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter (IM or unofficial colleagues, collaborators or cooperators).
[11] Given the context, and the fact that Wolf's most problematic act may have been her handwritten communication to the Stasi in 1959, the phrase 'Eine Art Mit-Schrift' carries echoes of 'Mitarbeit' (the German word for 'collaboration') and the Stasi's word for informer, Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter. On the surface here, Wolf is baiting the crudest of her critics, the tabloid journalists who ridiculed her memory lapse, or the western academics who scorned her claim that there was room under socialism for artists and intellectuals to live and work freely.
Opposing all these are the many clandestine IMs ("Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter" or "Unofficial Collaborators") of the Stasi.
These stories and essays by the former East Germany's most famous writer arrive here under a cloud: the recent revelation that from 1959 to 1962 Wolf was an Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter (I.M.), an informal collaborator for the East German secret police, the dreaded Stasi.
