In a recent interview in one of their country’s newspapers officials from Germany's domestic intelligence agency, “Verfassungsschutz” said they had proof that in an effort to raise funds to finance their operations, members of the National Socialist Underground sold a neo-Nazi version of the popular board game “Monopoly.”

According to officials the repugnant board game is called “Pogromly,” it makes light of the Holocaust, one of the most horrific periods in the modern time. The skinhead game includes depictions of Adolf Hitler and features concentration camps and gasworks for sale in the place of Monopoly's train stations, the start square features a large Swastika and instead of houses you can buy burning Israeli flags. Consider that these extremists are not limited to Germany, experts say that fueled by the poor global economy, the numbers of the extremist groups are growing, and there are even a number of these hate groups sharing the same ideology present in the US, but arriving at a conclusive number is virtually impossible, because by their very nature, these groups are secretive and reclusive. They often take great pains to simultaneously isolate themselves from parts of society they feel are corrupt or unacceptable.
