There the second, but scholars generally refer

There were two unrelated commissions
established by the German Parliament ,the first leading into
the second, but scholars generally refer to them togetheras one, and
they are seen as part of the same review process.In March 1992, the German Parliament made a board to scrutinize  and document the exercises of the GDR (Eastern  German) authority from 1949 to 1989, the Commission of Diaquisition for the Evaluation of History and Autcomes  of
the SED Autocracy  in Germany. The Socialist
Unity Party, was the soveraign party of East Germany and thick runned  the country for across 40 years. The
commission shape and process heed the
established guidelines for parliamentary
commissionsof inquiry in Germany, with political parties represented equivalent to their  representation in Parliament as a complete form. The heir party tothe Democratic Socialist Party, was represented on the board with one asociate. 11 of the twenty-seven
members of the cboard were specialists from the exterior of
Parliament, primarily historians. .The repression beneath the East German system was unusual from the extensive cruelty seen in
other regions under study here. Although therecertainly was physical repression
against dissidents, many of those whoexpressed opposition to the system
suffered less cruel consequences: they were barred from
universities, prohibited from working in their picked
jobs,or frequently harassed by authorities. The commission’smandate thus reached beyond a focus on gross human rights violationsto a broader
inquiry into government policy and practice. It was directed to”conduct
political-historical analysis and make political-ethical assessments” ofthe
structure and practices of the SED party; the human freedoms breaches and
environmental indignity that followed; breaches of
international human freedoms conventions and legislations, including political, mental, and psychosocialr epression; the scope of doctrine  in teaching literature, and daily way of living; the roleof the opposition movement; Church–nation 
relations; the independence
of thejudiciary; and connection between Western and Eastern  Germany.The task was largely research based, commissioning over
onehundred papers on a wide range of topics, mostly written by academic
historianswho made use of files opened since the fall of East Germany. The
commissionheld many general  hearings where these papers
were presented. It alsoheard “harrowing performance” from victims, though not in
great numbers. Thecommission held no subpoena power, and most former government
officialswho were invited to give testimony declined, in part fearing their
testimonycould be used against them in court.
