Which immigrants living in Germany are forced to integrate and which ones can go on living the way they always have? Which ones can feel at home, and which ones count as foreigners? Everyone is a foreigner just about everywhere, yet no one wants to belong to a minority. Ever since remarks in a book by former Bundesbank board member Thilo Sarrazin reignited the debate on immigration and integration, people certainly haven’t been mincing their words. Reporters Nadya Luer, Hakan Savas Mican and Stephanie Wätjen set out to gauge the level of integration in the concrete jungle of Neukölln, a district of Berlin with a high percentage of residents with immigrant backgrounds. They talk to ethnic Turks about how accepted they feel, what problems they have and what they are doing to become integrated into German society.
