Realities of Migrant and Temporary workers in FRG und GDR

From the early 1950s onwards, and in the GDR from the early 1960s onwards, workers from other countries came to both the German states. Living and working conditions were symbols not only of discrimination, but also of economic over-exploitation. Some spontaneous strikes against these conditions have become legendary.
