Many Germans are in a state of shock after a neo-Nazi cell, which was allegedly responsible for a string of murders, was uncovered.

The group, which calls itself the National Socialist Underground, has been accused of murdering eight people of Turkish origin and one of Greek origin between 2000 and 2006 and the fatal shooting of a policewoman in 2007.

German police are uncovering chilling details about the group and the German authorities are being asked hard questions about how the group remained active for over a decade.

Is neo-Nazism a growing problem across Europe?

Inside Story, with presenter James Bays, discusses with guests: Andreas Hieronymus, the managing director of Research on Migration and Racism and a board member of the European Network Against Racism; Elis Cindik, the deputy chairwoman of the Turkish Community in Germany; and Jamie Bartlett, the head of the Violence and Extremism Programme at Demos.
