Media reporting about the open letter from Berlin lecturers

Hertie School leadership files complaint against defamatory media reporting.

The leadership of the Hertie School condemns the defamation of individuals, including Hertie School lecturers and staff, by German tabloid newspaper Bild in an article published on 10 May 2024. This article attacks the signatories of an open letter, written and signed by many lecturers and staff in reaction to student protests at Berlin universities. As the Hertie School, we are filing an official complaint with the German Press Council.
