For years, the crimes of the NSU terror cell went unnoticed. DW reviews the crimes themselves, the police investigation and a contentious courtroom decision and speaks with the victims' family members.
The murders started on September 9, 2000 in the southern German city of Nuremberg. Florist Enver Simsek was found dead in his shop. Now it is believed that Enver Simsek was the first of ten victims of the alleged neo-Nazi murder trio consisting of Uwe Mundlos, Uwe Böhnhardt and Beate Zschäpe. Zschäpe, the only surviving member of the trio, goes on trial April 17.
