The 1995 Schengen agreement abolished passport and other border controls for those transiting the common Schengen member states’ borders1. Among the 34 Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) nations, Germany is currently ranked as the second most popular country for immi- gration2. According

394 BYSTANDERS TO THE HOLOCAUST Bernard Wasserstein The British Government and the German Immigration 1933-1945 The roots of British policy towards the German immigration in the Nazi period can be traced back to the firmly established Victorian tradition of free immigration and political asylum and to the political struggles and legislative action which eventually limited that tradition between 1905 and 1919. Between 1826 and 1905 there was, in effect, total freedom of immigration to Britain. Although an Aliens Act limiting that freedom was passed by

Tanager 4 Learning to be German: immigration and language in Berlin 1 Introduction After moving to Berlin in the winter of 2014, I attended two months of an Integrationskurs [Integration Program], a German language and civics course for foreigners planning to live in Germany long-term. Immigration law and inte- gration policy regulate these courses; permission to reside in the country or obtain citizenship is sometimes conditional on successful completion of the program. My experience in the courses inspired my Master’s thesis’ focus and the ensuing study

How Recent Amendments in German Immigration Law Affect Decisions THE CASE OF POLISH DOCTORS1 Simon Fellmer 1 Introduction The potential of a managed immigration to Germany due to economic reasons was for a long time ignored by German politicians. They claimed that Germany was not a country of immigration at all. For ex- ample, the German social democratic party (SPD) agreed in 1982 that the Federal Republic of Germany was not an immigration country. In 1994 the conservatives (CDU/CSU) made clear that their party would never adopt a German immigration law

1 . German Immigration to Colonial America : Prototype of a Transatlantic Mass Migration MARIANNE WOKECK IN 1981 WE OBSERVED the granting of the charter of Pennsyl- vania; last year we celebrated the arrival of William Penn in the Dela- ware Valley; and this year is the tercentenary of the landing of the first group of immigrants from Germany and the founding of Germantown. These three historical events that cause us to commemorate the rich heritage of our past were intricately connected and of the utmost im- portance for the relocation of about one

* 1 A * A A A w III The German Immigration and the Shaping of Reform 1825-94 The period between 1775 and 1815 was to be the longest given the American people to develop its character without the disturbing in- fluence of great numbers of immigrants of varying backgrounds. The American Jewish community, too, which had received rela- tively large numbers of immigrants during the 1750's and 1760*8, was given time in which to blend its various elements. The original languages of the immigrants disappeared. This happened partly be- cause the influence of any

3. Organizing German Immigration: The Role of State Authorities in Germany and the United States AGNES BRETTING F. c. HUBER, WHO IN 1898 analyzed the attitude of state au- thorities toward emigration in the German kingdom of Württemberg, compared the masses of emigrants to a school of herring being sub- stantially diminished by their enemies, who waited for the prey en route to America.1 This comparison is certainly impressive, but is it valid? German emigrants have always been cheated and fleeced by emi- gration agents, brokers, merchants, ship owners

‘Ausländer’ – A Racialized Concept? ‘Race’ as an Analytical Concept in Contemporary German Immigration History Maria Alexopoulou Silencing as Methodology In an article published in American Historical Review, German Professor of American History Manfred Berg and two co-authors describe the problems European – and in his case, particularly German – historians have in using the concept of ‘race.’1 In light of the “insoluble association with Nazi ideology, the very idea of race appears too contaminated for a semantic resurrection,” Berg argues (2014

‘To Live as Germans Among Germans.’ Immigration and Integration of ‘Ethnic Germans’ in the German Empire and the Weimar Republic Jochen Oltmer In 1950, in the aftermath of the Second World War and after flight and expulsion had come to an end, there were about four million Germans still living in East, East Central and Southeastern Europe. Between 1950 and 1975, a total of about 800,000 Aussiedler (immigrants who are recognised by the German authorities as being of German descent) passed through the Western German border transit camps, and 616,000 more arrived
