Here are the numbers for U.S.-Germany migration—771 in 2010

Joanne found this interesting link about German migration from an Israeli perspective.  http://www.forward.com/articles/154277/jews-stream-back-to-germany/?p=all#ixzz1rgjfm6YQ

Especially worth noting are the first hard numbers I have seen about American Jews taking German citizenship.
German government figures show that 3,663 Americans acquired German citizenship between 2003 and 2010, most of them Jews, according to the German Consulate in New York. And the trend has been accelerating: In 2003 there were 232 Americans who became Germans; in 2010 there were 771.
