More than a million migrants came to Germany last year. Both the German population and the refugees now face the major challenge of how to integrate them into society. In some ways it is a real clash of cultures, but a clash that many local people are working hard to try to ease. To understand the scale of this task, we went to Schlotheim, in Thuringia. A small town of 4,000 inhabitants, which is currently host to nearly 800 asylum seekers.
