“Germany’s 9/11”? Neo-Nazis and Right-Wing Terrorism in Germany and Their Links to US Actors
In 2011, a right-wing terrorist cell named “NSU” was discovered in Germany. The NSU –”National Socialist Underground” – killed ten people and committed several other crimes. For more than 13 years, three neo-Nazi terrorists had been able to live undetected acting under false identity. All these years the police and intelligence forces did not stop them. Germany’s Chief Federal Prosecutor has called this “Germany’s 9/11”. This may be seen as an exaggeration, nevertheless this judgement shows the importance of the NSU case. Tanjev Schultz puts it into a broader context of developments of the far right, including German Ku Klux Klan groups and ties between neo-Nazis and far right movements in Germany and the US.
