Vom Miteinander zum Nebeneinander: Die Immigration von Deutschen nach Dänemark
German immigration to Denmark had a long tradition. There were many German parishes and other German institutions in different Danish towns. Majority and minority led a life of peaceful coexistence. The fact that the Germans spoke German and were moulded by a German cultural background was no hindrance to a successful integration. This changed rapidly under the influence of 19th century nationalism. Especially during the Schleswig-Holstein wars the Germans in Denmark were heavily attacked. They did not belong to the “nationale Gemeinschaft”, they were not wanted in the national community. The once lived coexistence with its inspiring elements for society vanished. Danes and Germans began to live separate lives.
