In the GDR, women from the age of 12 onwards have been committed to closed venerology wards. The involuntarily committed had not been informed about the medical treatment on the wards; it was performed without their consent – impinging on their physical integrity. The closed venerology wards have been controlled by the Ministry of State Security. Unofficial employee reported to the Ministry on the medical personnel and on the patients on the wards. Due to this information the Ministry of State Security knew at all times, what was taking place within the closed venerology ward in Halle and who was being compulsory admitted to this ward. The Ministry of State Security diversely used this information. Physicians were simultaneously involved as unofficial employees in operational processes against individual patients.
