Government Commemorates Neo-Nazi Murder Victims
Gamze Kubasik (L) and Semiya Simsek, both relatives of one of the NSU murder victims, carries a "candle of hope" after speaking at a state commemoration for the victims of the NSU neo-Nazi murders at the Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt on February 23, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. German government leaders, state officials and relatives of the victims are commemorating the nine immigrants and one policewoman murdered over a 10-year period in a killing spree by Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Boenhardt, members of the National Socialist Underground, or NSU, a Neo-Nazi terrorist organization that went undetected by German law enforcement until the two men committed suicide last year after a police chase following a bank robbery. The case has caused a scandal for German law enforcement officials and brought politicians to re-examine the danger of right-wing crime.
