Abstract:This thesis examines the integration process and identity of three generations of Transylvanian-Saxons in Salzburg, Austria since the Second-World War, testing four hypotheses. An overview of the most important historical events in Transylvania from their settlement to the dispersion of a large number of Transylvanian-Saxons in the 1940s, provides an insight into their changing political, administrative and personal rights and powers subject to different rulers (Hungary, Turkish empire, Austrian- Hungarian empire, Romania) controlling the area of Transylvania. This is followed by a general assessment of studies of national identity and a description of stages of development in Transylvanian-Saxon identity and its key characteristics. Hypotheses assuming evidence of a continued Transylvanian-Saxon identity in Salzburg and within it elements of the main characteristics described were tested through participant observation and interviews with members of three generations of Transylvanian-Saxons. Two further hypotheses were used to test changes in the sense of Transylvanian-Saxon identity within the three groups, and demographic factors influencing the immigrant identity of the first generation group. The results show that there is a feeling or association of Transylvanian-Saxon identity perceptible in all three generations, although on a varying level: while the first generation clearly defines itself as Transylvanian-Saxon, the second generation's self-description tends to be a combination of seeing oneself as only Transylvanian-Saxon, only Austrian or a combination of both. The majority of the third generation acknowledges Transylvanian-Saxon influences to have added to their sense of identity, and therefore rejects the notion of being 'completely' Austrian. While some characteristics of 'traditional' Transylvanian-Saxon identity were still found in interviewees from all three generations, others, such as adherence to a Protestant belief, seem to have lost their importance due to integration in a modern society.
