In this episode, you will hear how Peter Keup's life was made a misery following his family's application for an exit visa. Peter discusses how his life was never to be the same again.

How he was treated as a pariah by the East German state, which led to him trying to escape the GDR, getting captured, and spending time in an East German cell. He was later bought out by West Germany and following the fall of the Wall, he was to learn via his family's Stasi files that he was spied on by his brother for the Stasi.  Peter now works in the former Stasi prison where he was incarcerated.
