This thesis, with the title: ?From Budak to Graz. Multiple identities and integration of bilingual families from Romania in Austria in the 20th century?, deals with the migration and integration of, according to their own view of themselves, Germans from Transylvania to/in Austria during and after the Second World War. This paper is subdivided into two major parts. The first part illustrates the history of Transylvania and Transylvanian Saxons. Without this knowledge about the centuries-old history of these people and this region, it is hardly possible to understand their newer history. The second major chapter describes the life stories of a couple of Transylvanian Saxons. Their life stories have been surveyed in narrative interviews and, so-called, ero-epic dialogues. In the following chapters, the questions, like the type of and reason for the migration, the degree of their integration as well as today?s meaning of ?Deutschtum? and ?Transylvania as homeland? to my interviewees, are answered. In summary, the following results, among others, can be presented:§The types of and motives for migration are bound to many different political and private circumstances.§Talking about my interviewees, their integration can be called a multiple sort in all cases. Multiple integration means integration in the ?new? society while still being connected to the ?old? society. §Transylvania is most of the time remembered idealised and is still called homeland.§The ?Deutschtum? and the sense of belonging to it are in many cases still very important.
