Cristalnacht in the Fairfax District
Print Friendly and PDF

The Fairfax neighborhood in West Hollywood, CA is known both for its elderly Jewish population of 1940s refugees and its luxury stores selling conspicuous consumption items that rappers crave, like Cristal champagne.

So the smashing of windows and looting of high end shops on Fairfax and Melrose boulevards could be dubbed Cristalnacht, especially because a small number of the terrorized residents can likely still remember the Kristallnacht of 82 years ago.
