Who we work for
What our researchers say
I have been living in Dresden for over 2 years now and have found that the city has lots to offer. Dresden is just the ideal size for a modern city and offers all the amenities that you could ask for, be it healthcare, education or job opportunities. The scientific landscape is exciting and an open mindset of the people implies that there are opportunities to collaborate with people from the different Max Planck Institutes as well the University campus within the city.

Unfortunately, due to some last minute changes in the plan I could not personally come and thank you. So, I am writing this email to thank you so much! ‘Thank you’ is really a small word to express my gratitude. The job you are doing is incredible and I learned a lot about Germany from your events. If it wasn’t you, I would not have explored many regions. I already miss Dresden and the Welcome Center! I wish you a lot of success and hope the Welcome Center gets even bigger! Thank you once again!

Thursday, 8 February: Wind River (German Premiere) Do not miss the German premiere of this box office success, dealing with important yet relatively widely unknown issues on the last frontier of the American wilderness. This chilling thriller follows a rookie FBI agent who teams up with a local game tracker in order to investigate the murder of a girl on a remote Native American Reservation in the hopes of solving her mysterious death.

Historic Background World War II in Germany and Europe The second world war lasted 6 years (1939-1945) and represented the largest military conflict in history, involving all of the great powers of the 20th century and killing millions of people from many different countries across the world. It was the first time in recorded history that the civilian population was effected more severely than that of the military. For the first time entire urban areas were destroyed using air attacks. Cities like Warsaw (Poland), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Coventry (United Kingdom) and Dresden (Germany) became symbols of this destruction. In addition to Dresden, many big and […]
