Summary

Identity development as a central task of adolescence can take a problematic course in young people with a migration background. Particularly under stressful experiences, cultural peculiarities of the country of origin can make adolescence with its second individuation phase superimposed by a third migration-related phase (Blos, Akhtar) more difficult. Using three case studies, some specific dangers for such Borderland youths are shown, such as slipping into glorified militant ideologies of their country of origin, the diagnostic colonization of strange symptoms and the reactivation of elements of the Nazi past in the present with perpetrator-victim constellations triggered by the foreign. A lack of boundaries between reality and fantasy as well as transmissive and deposited conflicts are described.
