Statement on the terrorist attack against Israel


We are shocked by the terror and war in Israel, in the Gaza Strip and in the neighbouring areas. The HGB Leipzig stands in solidarity with its partner university in the region, the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem, its students, colleagues, artists and designers and joins the messages of the German Rectors' Conference (HRK) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

This war is also being waged at the expense of the civilian population in the affected areas and is bringing suffering, destruction and displacement. Our thoughts are with all victims of war and violence as well as their relatives and friends.

HGB students who are directly affected by the situation and need support and help can contact the HGB rectorate directly: rektorat@hgb-leipzig.de. We would also like to refer you to the following contact points for psychosocial counselling:
- Psychological counselling of the HGB and HMT student councils
- Psychosocial counselling of the Studentenwerk Leipzig
- Social counselling for international students at the HGB
