The Catholic real estate group, called the Aachener Sieldungs- und Wohnungsgesellschaft, bought the complex of buildings with over 100 apartments in 2011, and through the active input of the Roma families living there turned it into a success story of progressive living and immigration policy. The Harzer Strasse facility offers German language classes, urban adaptation and other workshops designed to help the Roma families integrate successfully into life in Germany. Germany, like many countries in western Europe, has experienced a large influx of Roma from Romania and Bulgaria in recent years. (Photo by Carsten Koall/Getty Images)
