Macedonians

Macedonians (in French: Macédoniens) in France form a small minority mainly concentrated in the capital Paris. Many of them were unskilled immigrants and returned to Macedonia after finishing their work in France. After World War II many returned this time as immigrants. Most of the immigrants originated from the Struga, Ohrid and Kicevo regions. They were primarily settled in migrant hostels and "ghettoes". More still emigrated to France after the breakup of Yugoslavia. The French government estimates the number of Macedonians in France to be 2,300 while Macedonian figures put the number at over 15,000 people.
