The main defendant in the trial, which began today in Munich, Beate Zschaepe, is on trial for her role in assisting Uwe Boehnhardt and Uwe Mundlos in the murder of nine immigrants and one policewoman across Germany between 2000 and 2007, and four other co-defendants, including Ralf Wohlleben, Holder G., Carsten S. and Andre E., are accused of assisting the trio. Zschaepe, Mundlos and Boehnhardt lived together for years undetected by police and called themselves the National Socialist Underground, or NSU. The case only came to light after Mundlos and Boehnhardt committed suicide after the two were cornered by police following a bank robbery in 2011. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
