Germany´s migration history

Germany´s migration history workshop 'Democracy in Germany 2' - Marcel Berlinghoff´s lecture in arabic translation

von: Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung

Germany is a country of immigration - this understanding grew slowly within politics and society. Marcel Berlinghoff, historian and expert in migration research, indicates that migration to and from Germany is historically the normal case and has always been the foundation of social change.


Late 19th century emigration from Germany, inter-german migration during the Cold War or forced migration in recent times of wars and persecution: In a short lecture Berlinghoff gives an overview over important stations within Germany´s history of migration.
