Abstract

The percentage of German immigrants in Argentina, measured by the total population of the country, never exceeded the 2% threshold, but their integration took many different forms. ' This was already proven by the 2008 colloquium in Buenos Aires on the subject "La inserci6n de la minoria alemana en Argentina entre 1900 y 1933" (published in 2008 as Volume IV of the Anuario Argentino de Germanfstica). Even this colloquium, which does not commit itself to any period of time, will further broaden the integration therna. What makes the writer Robert {o) Schopflocher interesting in this context is an incorporation in Argentina, which, despite the professional success as settlement manager, merchant and even as author writing in Spanish, remained ultimately limited. Because so deep were the childhood and the early youth grown deursch-Jewish roots, that they ultimately caused his reintegration as a writer in Germany and allowed, On the basis of his life, his literary career and his texts, this development will be followed in the following. It will turn out that Schopflocher can be described as a "hybrid" Schrifrsreller, who creates an intercultural "third room" with many of his works.
