What our researchers say
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!

The support I had before and just after my arrival in Dresden was a great help. With the help of the Welcome Center of the University, I immediately found an apartment in Dresden-Neustadt. I did not expect Dresden to be such a beautiful place.

Friday, 16 November: Waiting for Summer’s Return & Dresden Refuge As part of the opening evening for the “NO HATE” Film Festival, two Dresden documentaries will be on show at the Technische Sammlungen. The best part is that admission on Friday is free, so there is no excuse not to attend and learn a bit more about what is going on in our very own home city. For a full description of the festival, be sure to check out our separate blog post by clicking here. The opening movie, Waiting for Summer’s Return, highlights the journey of the musicians of […]
Hatred is a strong human emotion which is often associated with feelings of animosity, anger or resentment, directed towards individuals, groups, entities, objects, behaviours, concepts or ideas. It has been analysed and described by numerous psychologists and psychoanalysts – Freud defining the term as an ego state that wishes to destroy the source of its unhappiness, stressing that it is linked to the question of self-preservation. At its strongest, hate may lead to so-called hate crimes, which are criminal acts motivated by the emotion. At a lower, yet equally worrying level, hate speech is speech perceived to disparage a person […]
Tip for the whole week: MoveIT film festival for human rights! Friday, 9 November: Alternative Band Triple Concert As part of the ‘German-Czech Culture Days’ festival, the Scheune in the Dresden Neustadt will receive a quite unusual concert this Friday. No, this is not your regular weekly jazz concert or another rock concert, this will be a diverse alternative music concert made up of three separate bands, each with their own unique style. As the larger festival behind this concert is meant to celebrate German and Czech culture, it is only natural that two of the bands playing this evening are Czech while the third is […]
