The detailed typescript notes all the important events and changes in the Berlin police office, from the capitulation of Germany on May 7th 1945 until the end of 1974. Marked are also all the important events, related to the police work, which divided into the East and West Berlin during the cold war. The last part includes transcriptions of important documents until 1958.
Marked are the events, carefully sorted by dates, such as new acquisitions of ammunition and equipment, drills, students’ riots, protecting various diplomats, collaborations with police abroad and organization around the Berin Wall, erected on August 13, 1961.
The book comes from a collection of a police historian Peter Kleinhans from Berlin, who authored several texts on the subject. Kleinhans was possibly also the author of the typescript.
