In the last few years there has been a marked increase in the number of stabbing attacks in Germany against people in public places. No one knows the cause of the mysterious increase; political and social leaders are baffled. One theory holds that global warming has extended the knifing season each year, giving perpetrators more time out on the streets to choose their random victims.
The man in the video below reads excerpts from an article in a women’s fashion magazine that gives its readers tips on how to deal with knife attacks.

German Women’s Magazine Gives Tips on Treating Stab Wounds
As knife crime continues to be a major issue in Germany, one German women’s magazine has written an article on the treatment of stab wounds in its “health and fitness” section.
The April edition of the women’s magazine Illu der Frau contained the article “How do I treat a stab wound?” along with an adjacent subtitle which highlights the growing problem of knife crime across the country, Tichy’s Einblick reports.
The article aims to give practical advice for those who may be victims or witness stabbing attacks saying, “Importantly, before you provide first aid, make sure the perpetrators have disappeared, your own safety is a priority.”
While attacks and murders using knives have often become major headline stories — particularly those which involve migrants stabbing young German women to death, such as the cases of 15-year-old Mia in the town of Kandel in 2017 — actual reliable statistics on knife crime are sketchy at best in Germany.
In an article published earlier this year, German newspaper Die Welt noted the lack of statistics for knife crime citing the Union of Police who said that it could take years for reliable statistics to be made available.
|00:02||Hello! Right now I’m at the Breitscheid Platz, where I live.|
|00:06||Looks great here now, huh?|
|00:13||I just read something on Twitter. Something I just couldn’t believe.|
|00:17||I though it was a fake tweet or something. But it isn’t.|
|00:25||Please go away from here quickly. —Why? —My wife died here. Please don’t sit here.|
|00:29||Someone just chased me away from here claiming his wife died there. That’s absolutely OK.|
|00:34||Yeah, so I just spoke with him a couple of minutes. He explained to me he was in Hannover when|
|00:41||his girlfriend was run over by the Islamist terrorist. Let’s get back to the topic and why I’m here.|
|00:50||I live here, and I was just at the central station newsstand.|
|00:55||I bought this magazine called Women’s illu (illustrated), because I heard something I couldn’t believe.|
|01:03||Or that it would be in such a gossip rag, but it is.|
|01:07||This is the Women’s illu (illustrated), brilliant entertainment #4 from May 2019 for €1.20.|
|01:16||So on page 56:|
|01:22||“How do I treat a knife wound?” Can you image that?|
|01:26||Something like this is in a women’s magazine nowadays. “Important: Before you administer first aid,|
|01:31||make certain that the culprit or culprits are gone. You own safety has priority.”|
|01:37||Ok, so I’ve decided I’ll read it through quickly. We can read it together.|
|01:45||Maybe I can edit this later. So, “How do I treat a knife wound? Knife attacks are becoming more frequent.|
|01:50||Reports of knife attacks are becoming more frequent. Here’s what you need to do within the first moments.|
|01:54||Almost daily the newspapers report about crimes being committed with knives. In 2017 in Berlin alone,|
|01:59||2,737 knife attacks occurred according to inquiries from the CDU. In Saxony, the number of attacks|
|02:07||increased from 970 in (2014) to 1,200 (2017). How big is the threat? It’s not clear how big the threat|
|02:15||actually is because there’s no nationwide registration system of these crimes. It will take years|
|02:20||for any serious figures are released, but you shouldn’t wait that long. What to do in a serious…”|
|02:26||There is printing error here. Doesn’t matter.|
|02:33||“you should know” something. “Attention! Never pull the knife out of the wound, otherwise it could lead|
|02:39||to heavy bleeding. Call the paramedics. First dial the police 110 and make an emergency call 112.|
|02:45||If you happen to have sterile gloves with you, for example in the first aid box in your car, put them on.|
|02:49||If necessary you could ask other drivers for their first aid kit. Correct bandaging: First and foremost|
|02:53||is to stop the bleeding or at least slow the bleeding. In order to do that pressure must be applied.|
|02:59||Apply pressure with a germ-free compress firmly on the wound. If necessary a piece of cloth will do,|
|03:04||a scarf or a t-shirt, for an emergency it may not be sterile. The priority is to stop the bleeding.”|
|03:09||There’s another printing error, it says something with “you could also wrap a second layer of bandaging.”|
|03:13||Use a pressure dressing on the wound and bandage it with 2 to 3 layers of gauze.|
|03:19||Important! The pressure dressing must be bigger than the wound and non-absorbent. Suitable are|
|03:24||bandage packages or tissue packages, both unopened. If a pressure dressing is not able to be set|
|03:30||with bandaging, for example on the abdomen, then pressure must be maintained until the ambulance arrives.|
|03:37||Internal bleeding can only be stopped by surgery. The danger of internal bleeding: Knife wounds are|
|03:42||normally small on the skin surface, but go deep into the body. Even knife wounds that aren’t bleeding|
|03:47||very much could have organs below the surface which are injured and result in life-threatening|
|03:51||internal bleeding. Those who perform first aid can’t stop the internal bleeding, but should call|
|03:55||emergency services and elevate the victim’s leg to avoid shock. Don’t worry about making a mistake.|
|04:00||Are you afraid of making a mistake and worry about being made liable for unforeseeable damages|
|04:05||caused by a wrong action? No need to worry. Those who administer first aid are not punishable.”|
|04:08||Blah, blah, blah. So, finished.|
|04:14||OK, so they forgot the really important tips. First of all, this woman isn’t wearing a burka. Secondly, the|
|04:21||woman made the man angry somehow, otherwise he wouldn’t have stabbed her. So it is the woman’s fault.|
|04:26||OK, this isn’t really funny now. Totally unbelievable.
