Identity is the simplest way of an expression and meaning in the social base of a person regarding culture. The concept of identity having a personal meaning could also gain a social feature and by the adaptation of its usage in national and social scale could also shape, affect and form the relation and integration between one single person and the society. The meaning of concept of identity carrying a national context could sometimes differ between Turkish and German societies. And by the way, this could support the formation of common life statues of these two societies by either positive or negative effects.
