    Fonti ufficiose affermano che nella Germania dell'Est gli informatori al servizio della Stasi, la potente polizia segreta, fossero una persona ogni sei abitanti e nel dopo-1989, all'apertura degli archivi, con grande sorpresa si è scoperto quante famiglie allevassero al proprio interno informatori incaricati di riferire allo stato i pensieri e le aspirazioni dei propri familiari. In un libro scritto con una suggestiva tonalità narrativa, Anna Funder ci riconduce in quell'esperienza.
