Call for Donation


Two weeks ago we were devastated by the news of the tragic death of a young student at our university. Kateryna passed away far too early at the age of only 23.


She came to our Hanseatic city from the Ukraine at the beginning of April to fulfill her dream of a Master's degree in German Studies. Kateryna started a new phase of her life here, attended lectures, started to become familiar with the surroundings and new people. Two weeks after her arrival, she succumbed within a few days to the consequences of a rapid and severe covid infection. Her sudden death came as an enormous shock to family and friends.


Unfortunately, the insurance does not cover the transfer to her country. According to our current knowledge, the costs already amount to more than 3000. In addition, there will be further fees for the funeral.
