The former parliament building of the GDR was hermetically sealed off
during the nineties. Whereas officials claimed this was due to
asbestos-contamination, the real reason was the ideological
contamination in a city who's population in the former east still vote
in their mayority for the former communist party. Not unlike the
concrete "sarcophagus" built around the burst "Block 4"-reactor in
Chernobyl, the edifice seemed to heavily radiate ideology.
