The National Socialist Underground murders were a series of racist attacks perpetrated throughout Germany between 2000 and 2007. Ten people died and one was wounded. The primary targets had migration backgrounds. For years, the German press and police were convinced the murders were the result of turf wars of the Turkish-German mafia. They referred to them colloquially as the ‘Kebab Murders’. The German intelligence services had infiltrated the NSU, but its own agents, suspected of right-wing sympathies themselves, appeared to have obstructed the investigations into the full extent of the NSU, which almost certainly consisted of more than the two men and woman, canonised by the German far right, and referred to obliquely in Clemens Meyer’s story, ‘Where the Dragons Live’.
