The soldiers were driven from the quieter districts of the city to the center of the fighting. Between October 22 and 24, 1923, bloody street fights between communists and security police, supported by the Army of the Reich, occurred in Hamburg. The Security Police eventually quelled the uprising. This was the last attempt by the KPD (German Communist Party) to gain power by force in Germany, abetted by the turmoil of the post-war years., 22.10.1923-24.10.1923
