The NSU murder series refers to nine racially motivated murders of small business owners with a migration background, eight of them of Turkish origin and one Greek, which the right-wing extremist terrorist group National Socialist Underground (NSU) committed in major German cities between 2000 and 2006. The official investigations focused on the victims themselves and their relatives, which led to their victimization and stigmatization, while there was hardly any investigation into a right-wing extremist motivation. In the leading media, the crimes were misleadingly referred to as kebab murders or – according to the title of the homicide squad involved – murder series Bosporus, which was criticized from 2011 as trivializing, clichéd and racist. The eponymous murder weapon, a pistol of the type Česká CZ 83, caliber 7.65 mm Browning, was seized in November 2011 in the rubble of the last NSU apartment in Zwickau.
