History

Lebanese people in Germany express their support of the 2015 Lebanese protests in Berlin at Alexanderplatz, August 29, 2015

Although there has been sporadic migration from the Middle East to Germany since the 20th century, the real growth of the German Lebanese population began in 1975, with the start of the civil war in Lebanon which drove thousands of people away. No concrete data exists on the religious affiliations, however it is commonly assumed that Maronite Christians, Shia Muslims, and Sunni Muslims make up the majority of the Lebanese population in Germany.
