Report for 1980
Summary Report about "Work of Department 01 at Division 06, State Security, with respect to the artistic and scientific intelligentsia and healthcare in 1980", Sofia, 23 January 1981.
The report summarizes the work of the State Security among the intelligentsia (in arts, the sciences, and the medical profession) in 1980. It states that, as before, intellectual were a prime target of the subversive efforts by enemy forces from abroad. The report highlights the difficulties in the casework of agents. Yet some of the observations succeeded in "infecting their circles" because they had been conducted over long periods. The report, thus, is a good illustration of the concrete work of the state security among the intelligentsia and of its attempts to prevent acts of cultural opposition.
