Abstract in another language

This study thematizes the experiences of the Syrian women who fled to
Germany to escape the crises that has been ongoing since 2011. Adding to
the traumatizing escape from their home country, ensuing the loss of their
previous status and life, the women must orient themselves in a new
environment, adapting to a new culture with different laws and customs.
The women had been accompanied by a gruelling uncertainty since the
beginning of the war in Syria, and the question is raised what effects the
resettlement had on the women’s life and how they adapted to the new
situation. To provide an answer, an extensive fieldwork has
been completed in Bayreuth, Berlin and Brandenburg, including 44
interviews with Syrian refugee women of all ages and with different social
backgrounds. The women talked about their everyday life experiences in
Germany and about how they approached the different
challenges. Faced with uncertainty, they confronted the new situation by
first retrenching themselves into their pre-war lives. By observing and
judging what happened in their new environment, some women began to
consider a path forward for their new life in Germany.

Abstract in another language

Die durch den Krieg ausgelöste Krise und verschlechterte Sicherheitslage in
Syrien, hatte 2011 einen massiven Flüchtlingsstrom zur Folge. Diese Arbeit thematisiert die Erfahrungen der syrischen Frauen, die in diesem
Zusammenhang nach Deutschland geflohen sind, um Schutz zu suchen und
Asyl zu beantragen. Nach einer traumatischen Flucht aus ihrem
Heimatland, mussten die Frauen sich in einer ihnen unbekannten
Umgebung zurechtfinden und sich an eine unterschiedliche Kultur mit den
einhergehenden Gesetzten und Gepflogenheiten anpassen. Die Arbeit
setzt sich mit der Frage auseinander, welche Effekte diese Umsiedlung auf
das Leben der Frauen hatte und wie sich diese an die veränderten
Gegebenheiten angepasst haben.
