Ob Integration gelingt, ob Zuwanderung als Erfolgsgeschichte gelesen werden kann, leitet der Autor und Regisseur Michael Richter an drei wesentlichen Kriterien ab: Wie ist die Wohnsituation der Geflüchteten und Zuwanderer? Wie nehmen sie am Bildungssystem teil? Und wie ist ihr Zugang zum Arbeitsmarkt? Diesen Fragen geht Richter anhand von konkreten Beispielen, von Geschichten und Begegnungen, aber auch von wissenschaftlichen Analysen nach. Denn auch wenn sich Teile von Politik und Öffentlichkeit lange gegen diese Erkenntnis gesperrt haben: Deutschland hat jahrzehntelange Erfahrung als Einwanderungsland - gute und weniger gute, aber immer lehrreiche.
Michael Richters Beitrag zur Debatte um das magische »Wir schaffen das!« übersieht nicht die Schwierigkeiten, macht aber Hoffnung: Mit cleveren Konzepten und viel persönlichem Engagement kann Deutschland Heimatsein - für alle, die hier leben!
