The dramatic events in Cologne are in the same row with the historic tragedies of “Night of the Long Knives” in 1934 and “Kristallnacht” in 1938.
During the "Night of the long knives" there were over a thousand people killed. During the "Kristallnacht", which marked the beginning of the Holocaust, there were 2500 people killed, according to some estimates. Both events were organized by Hitler. In Cologne, nobody was killed, the authorities are investigating. The Town Police Chief is dismissed. An army of investigators are interviewing the witnesses and victims of crimes find and arrest the criminals.
