Die German Stunde talks about Immigration

program date: 
Fri, 09/24/2010

 Former German central banker Thilo Sarrazin has provoked a heated debate in Germany with the publication in August of his book:  Deutschland Schafft Sich Ab -- or Germany Does Away with Itself. In the book Sarrazin says Muslims are either unwilling or incapable of integration and that immigrants are more of a negative than a positive for the country. Politicians roundly condemned the statements, but some Germans say Sarrazin has publicly stated what many actually think. Host Miriam Widman discusses the book and immigration with Feridun Bek, a German of Turkish descent who is an auto industry executive now living in Detroit and with Sergey Lagodinsky, a Russian-Jewish immigrant to Germany who is a lawyer and member of the Social Democratic Party.
