German Turks

06 Feb 2013 / in

They call themselves German-Turks. Deported or fleeing Turkey without any language skills whatsoever, they have lived in Germany most of their lives. As a result of having no future in Turkey, they do not know which country they belong to. Germany doesn’t want them and their native Turkey does not accept them.

Back „home“ many German—Turks live in the north-western part of Turkey, living in slums, old abandoned buildings while spending their days trying to survive on the streets.
