The experience of the Turkish immigrants in Germany lasting for more than 45 years and swinging between identity and integration has a suis generis diversity with its three generations. The diverse living experiences of the immigrants have been fed by the dynamics of their identity senses, and produced its specific antagonistic or conformist expressions. Various religious communities directing their national and religious identity search have been influential on them, making their identity buildup and integration with German society difficult. The religious communities, to which the Turkish immigrants affiliated in their search for survival and a better future in Germany, now emphasize the educational projects in addition to their religious services.
