How Germany became Home: Remembering 60 Years of German-Turkish Recruitment Agreement

Nov. 26, 2021 from 4 p.m.6 p.m.
Past event

It all started with a signature. 60 years ago, the agreement on the recruitment of foreign workers was signed with Turkey. The immigration of people from Turkey is a story of ups and downs, of strokes of fate, but also of moments of happiness and great successes that have left a lasting mark on our country. But many of the great success stories of the former guest workers and their descendants are a largely unknown part of German post-war history, even today.

We want to use the 60th anniversary as an opportunity to take a look at the personal stories and achievements of the people who have been part of German society since the recruitment agreement.

The evening event on the topic "60 Years - How Germany became Home" will take place on November 26, 2021, at the German Consulate General in Istanbul.

Reading, panel discussion and music performance (livestream).

With: Serap Güler, Dafne Şahin and Öszan Mutlu, moderated by Dilşad Budak-Sarıoğlu.
