Russian Germans
The Problems of Professional, Linguistic, and Social Integration

Sonja Haug, Lenore Sauer

Deutsche Fassung


Russian Germans make up the largest immigrant group in Germany and with that one of the most important target groups of communal integration assistance. As a survey of experts and affected persons shows, the integration of this group has proved difficult primarily in the labour market, whereby most Russian Germans cope with everyday life relatively easily where language is concerned. To a large extent, social integration proceeds through church involvement or athletic activities.
