Historical Background of National Socialist Underground

The National Socialist Underground group abbreviated as NSU is considered to be a far-right terror group in Germany, which was on November 2011, uncovered in Germany. This terrorist group has been involved in several murder and terror cases in Germany. Between September 9th, 2000 and April 6th, 2006, the National Socialist Underground terror group was involved in the serial murder of nine immigrants from Greece and Turkey (The Bosphorus serial murders). Other murders attributed to this group include the killing of police woman, and the bombing in Cologne in 2004. According to the Germany’s Attorney General, the National Socialist Underground group is a “right-wing extremist group” with their main purpose being to kill every foreign citizen in the country out of anti-state sentiments and sentiment resulting from abnormal fear or hatred of the strange or foreign citizens (Range, 2011).

The National Socialist Underground terror group can be traced to as far back as the time of Hitler National Socialism philosophy. This political philosophy was created by Adolph Hitler and was applied first in Germany.
