Spuren – Die Opfer des NSU (Traces – The NSU Victims)

Aysun Bademsoy’s documentary focuses on the families of the victims of the serial murders of the National Socialist Underground (NSU) between 2000 and 2007, which German police and media originally ascribed to “foreign” criminal enterprises with explicitly racist imagery like the neologism Dönermorde, coined to mock the killings before the culprits were identified in 2011. The film captures not only the grief and alienation of these families, but also their second violation by German society in the relatively light sentencing of and minimal investigation into the broader context and institutional enablers of the neo-Nazi terrorists responsible.

Genre(s): Documentary, True Crime
