## First Kurdish Generations In Germany: Introduction

#### Avdo KARATAŞ [1]

The most neglected issue when examining the phenomenon of migration is the first generations issue. The first generations are, of course, the leading actors in migration trends. Despite playing an important role in the socialization of immigrants and the formation of the perception of immigrants, first generations have largely been neglected in migration research, and destination countries have typically been more interested in new generations.

When the Kurdish immigration phenomenon is objectively observed, it is clear that there is much waiting to be examined. In general, the first generation of Kurdish immigrants are neglected in the research. There are two “first generations” among Kurdish immigrants: “Worker first generation” and “refugee first generation.” This makes the study of the first generation of Kurdish immigrants even more important. In order to draw attention to this neglected issue, a biographical survey was conducted with six immigrants from the first generation and interpreted under the category of “the worker and the refugee first generation.” It sought to interpret four independent sections from the obtained data. This article was prepared as the first chapter and serves as the introduction for the first generations research. The purpose of this introduction is to establish a framework for the grading, concept, description, methods and theories about the first generation immigrants. The following three sections not included in this journal are about the following: “Problems of the first generation,” “new phenomena occurring in the Kurdish family in the diaspora,” and “the identities of the first generation.”
