Amnesty International founder dead at 83
Peter Benenson, who founded Amnesty International in 1961 and helped shape civil society, died Friday at the age of 83 from pneumonia, said Amnesty spokesman Brendan Paddy.

You can do it
There are some English speaking programs at a few German universities. Some are designed for foreign students, some are business programs conducted entirely in English.

If your goal is to study in Europe and not in Germany specifically, look elsewhere. If you have your heart set on Germany, you can find out about these programs through the foreign language department or international program division of your nearest university.
