Münster interested the Stasi for two reasons: It was both an important stronghold for the center-right political party Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and a university town with a left-wing scene. Stasi boss Erich Mielke had his agents seek out unofficial collaborators to work within the conservative political establishment. They attached themselves to the police and armed forces and worked their way into the political system. They also recruited students, promising young talents who might one day rank among West Germany's leaders, and thus become important informants for the GDR.
