Front cover: Johannes Irmscher, 29, as a teacher of Latin and Greek at the Faculty of Philology, June 27, 1950, seven years before he started his work for Stasi. Irmscher joined the NSDAP in 1938 and subsequently served in the Wehrmacht until 1945. He defended his thesis (Götterzorn bei Homer) in 1947 and was preparing for his habilitation; the moment has come to spend some time with the books.
