Abstract

The integration of Muslim-Turkish children into the German school environment and more importantly, into the larger context of German society, is fraught with difficulties. A host of sociocultural problems hinders their acceptance into the German culture, chief of which is the conflict that comes with being torn between two cultures. Prejudices that lead to their isolation also contribute to their failure to gain acceptance. These cause personal and social identity problems among the children, torn as they are between the Islamic value-norm system and the German environment.
