Deaf Culture - does this really exist? Are there really differences between deaf and hearing people, although both are living in the same country? Definitely! With regard to the Culture of the Deaf, there are numerous scientific studies and publications at home and abroad. Depending on the perception of deafness, deafness is considered and experienced as a disability or as an enrichment with an own culture. Therefore, deafness can be seen as a demarcation between two „worlds“: The world of the deaf and the world of the hearing majority. Different sensory perception, respectively the missing or severely impaired hearing, causes different interaction and communication patterns. Due to strong involvement within its own cultural community, deaf people define themselves by own needs, by own living conditions and their sign language towards the culture of the hearing people.
