We know in European history, terms like „clientele“, „servants“ or „serfs“ come up every now and then. But how do we determine if somebody was a „slave“ or merely „unfree“? I have the impression that slavery in Europe is mostly overlooked. The only time I see that brought up in public discourse is as a whataboutism to either defame the Black liberation movement or to portray Europeans as victims of foreing religions and people. Rarely to just study European history.
