Cold War: Rothenstein underground bunker, near Jena

According to an article in Die Welt, it's up for auction on Saturday.

Originally built by the Third Reich in 1944, it then became one of the NVA's four major bunkers, reportedly as the weapons dump for 4 Motor Rifle Division (I think).

Anyone know:
-- if it was built by slave labour, and if so from where?
-- anything else about its Cold War use?
-- what happened to it between 1989 and 2003, when the German Army finally vacated it?
-- where the Sovs stored their tactical nukes in the area Chemnitz-Jena?
