  • WHEN EUROPEANS WERE SLAVES: RESEARCH SUGGESTS WHITE SLAVERY WAS MUCH MORE COMMON THAN PREVIOUSLY BELIEVED. I have 3 long articles on white slavery which is NEVER mentioned anywhere. If you would like, I'll send them to you to your email. They must be too long for this comments box. The term “Slavs” refers to a large ethnic group originating from Eastern Europe, Poland Russia and Serbia. They were slaves too and the word Slavs is the root word for the word slaves. True. Great Blog. If you'd like those articles (3). telljulie@comcast.net I'd love to send them to you. Can't have too much info. One is from an Ohio State Univ. prof. Julie :)
