Digging in the Stasi's archives has thrown up this particular smoking gun in relation to would be escapees from the veritable paradise that was the Deutsche Demokratische Republik :

"Do not hesitate to use your firearm, even in the case of breaches of the border by women and children, as they are often used by traitors". Source.

The facts show it one more time - GDR and Nazi regime weren´t too far away.
