The Invisibles of the Cold War: KGB & STASI

Until January 31, 2021

A TOP-SECRET EXHIBITION

Mrs. Stéphanie M. holds the largest French, even European, collection of objects from the Soviet  (the KGB), and East German secret services (the Stasi).

From September 26, 2020, the Galerie Dauphine (Marché Dauphine, Puces de Paris Saint-Ouen) will welcome more than a thousand objects from this unique collection: secret service equipment exhibited for the first time to the French public such as the “Fialka” (the oldest Soviet model of electro-mechanical machine allowing the encryption / decryption of messages), transceivers used by secret agents, tape recorders, cameras and clandestine photographic devices specifically developed for special services. Exceptional uniforms, decorations, documents and relics from this dark period in history will also be on display for a “total” immersion of visitors into the secret world of the “invisibles”.

 

“I am impressed by your collection of very rare spy techniques. I am surprised that, while living in France, you managed to collect such extraordinary KGB items. »

January 2017, Julius Urbaitis (Founder and Manager of the “KGB Spy museum” in New York (USA) and the “Bunker KGB museum” in Kaunas/Vilnius (Lithuania).
