Society Inspectorate Berlin
Form INSIB05/PR: Informant’s Report
The INS is continually expanding its network of informants whose
reports form a vital component of the INS Inspectorate’s database
on Berlin. During the current phase of investigation the Inspectorate
seeks information on sites of erasure: i.e., specific locations
where no trace can be found of incidents or persons of possible
interest to the Inspectorate; locations where there is evidence
of attempts to cover or erase traces of incidents or persons; where
there is evidence of attempts to conceal such erasure (e.g., by
erecting a monument or memorial plaque). Selected sites will be
subjected to intensive surveillance during the course of the INS
Inspectorate Berlin Aerial Reconnaissance Phase, May 2005.
Additional reports are sought from informants who have access to
literary, philosophical, historical or official documentary material
relating INS concerns (i.e., marking and erasure; transit, circulation
and control; cryptography and death) to the city of Berlin.
Reports may be submitted in person at INS Inspectorate HQ, c/o
