We’ve seen how the diaspora affected the naval warfare of the Mediterranean, but there is another part of this event that can’t be ignored: Columbus’ journey to the Americas. The colonizing of the “New World” gave Jewish people expelled from Spain a whole new place to escape to, one hopefully out of reach from the Inquisition. And we see all of these ideas coalesce in one particular pirate, Moses Cohen Henriques, a man who used his connections to understand the workings of the Spanish colonies and pulled off one of the biggest treasure grabs on the high seas. Dude had his citizenship papers signed by Henry Morgan it really doesn’t get more pirate-y than this.

I would think many peoples facing hardships are responsible for the majority of human atrocities since the start of human history. Often people are displaced from climate change or are displaced by people displaced by climate change thus changing the genetic makeup of populations around the globe. Allegedly its what caused turks to seek out lands in Anatolia and why huns moved into the poetic steppe forcing vandals and goths into Rome. Then there's the likelihood the bronze age collapse was brought on by massive migrating populations escaping deteriorating conditions at home. Its a big reason I want to see… Read more »

Interesting fact about Piet Hein is that he was a great opponent of slavery, making him far ahead of his time. That is why it is such a shame that during the black lives matter protests in the Netherlands his statues was besmirched by the protesters. It was a bit of a stain on a otherwise good protest. It shows you once again how important it is to learn history…

I'm from Recife, the Dutch-Brazil's capital, where the first synagogue of the Americas is. Though we don't like colonialism in general, the jewish heritage in my region is immense, and everybody kinda know we have jewish ancestry

Just a wanna clear this up. The Inquisition wasn’t an organization whose dark fingers reached into every crevice of the religious world; it was standard European process by which a BAPTIZED CATHOLIC ( Jews were never the target of the inquisition because they were never given the authority by either Pope or King to prosecute them) were called before a religious authority and tried for heresy. If found guilty, the accused received every opportunity to return to the fold. Only those who persist were executed

The Spanish actions in the imperial era were so cruel that it becomes impossible to feel sorry for the loss of a bunch of conquistadors.

Whatifaltist said just because someone is a slave that doesn't mean they're good, it just means they're mistreated referring to what the freed slaves did in Liberia.
