History of failure, or 50 years of Turkish immigration to Germany.
On November 2, official Berlin solemnly celebrated the 50th anniversary of the German-Turkish agreement on the reception of migrant workers from Turkey.
After the end of World War II Germany was in dire need of additional manpower. It was decided to join the ranks of the able-bodied population by foreigners. In 1955, the corresponding agreement was signed with Italy, in 1960 – with Spain. Looking at this, the Turkish government, which experienced great problems with unemployment in its own country, suggested that the FRG hire Turkish guest workers.
To the history of the question.
The recession of 1967 temporarily suspended the process of hiring new guest workers. When he resumed, their composition has changed dramatically: working visas began to be issued mainly to women. In part, this was due to the continuing shortage of labor in the low-paid and unrewarded areas of the service sector, and in part to the family reunification process (in 1974 the Federal Law adopted the corresponding law). Thousands of wives rushed to Germany to their husbands, but also came women, who then hoped to transport their husbands and children to the FRG. In addition, Turkish workers had the opportunity to earn enough money to return home, marry and bring their wives to Germany.
A holiday with tears in your eyes?
In fairness, it should be noted that the children and especially the grandchildren of Turkish migrants are much more integrated than their parents, not to mention their grandfathers and grandmothers, and are often integrated into German society and often feel themselves to be full citizens of Germany. But, unfortunately, this does not change the general picture.
