The fact that we have been able to abolish slavery always gives me some hope that maybe someday we'll be able to end wars too. Thanks for the link.

I found this advertisement especially sickening.

Thanks plep - this is a fine collection on the topic. Here are some slave narratives to go with the visuals. I probably got that link from your site at some point ;-)

homunculus, that is an excellent but very depressing link.
