Der Spiegel reports the hacktivist collective Anonymous is actively targeting neo-Nazis in Germany in a campaign called Operation Blitzkrieg.

The group has launched a WikiLeaks-style website, Nazi-Leaks, to support the operation. They are publishing materials hacked from Germany's extreme right-wing party, the Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands, or National Democratic Party of Germany (NDP).

From Der Spiegel:

"The website currently features lists of alleged donors to the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD), internal NPD emails, a contacts list from the right-wing weekly newspaper Junge Freiheit and customer data from neo-Nazi online stores, among other information"

Germany's The Local says the group claims to have shut down 15 Nazi-loving websites so far. Although work on the campaign seems to have been going on for several months, it came to the public's attention on Monday.

The identities of alleged fascist party members and customers include at least one well-known journalist, said the publication.

"People listed on the portal as having written for the Junge Freiheit newspaper included Peter Scholl-Latour, according to the Frankfurter Rundschau. He is a respected journalist and Afghanistan expert who has written for, among other publications, the Stern magazines."

Although fascist nutjobs are a perennial problem in Germany, and a frequent target of that country's hackers, their profiles have been raised by the recent discovery of a seven-year murder spree and the arrest of its perpetrators. From 2000 to 2006, a trio of neo-Nazi killers, the so-called Zwickau Cell, killed 8 Turks and one Greek, most of whom owned or worked in food stands.

The op seems to follow on a similar anti-Nazi attack, OpValkomaa, against Finnish fascists late last year.
