This afternoon I spent about an hour browsing through the (auto)biographies of some of the Nobel prize winners. It is simply amazing how many of them are and were ( children of ) immigrants( and not less fascinating to see how many of them are Jewish ). This tells us something about the potential which immigration has to enrich countries and societies, very much depending on the immigrants themselves and on the societies that receive them.
