Translated from Starnieuws in Suriname:

Mc Leod: Dutchmen most cruel slave-masters
16 March [2013]

The writer Cynthia Mc Leod states that the Dutch were the most cruel slave-masters. The writer was the first Surinamese author speaking before the Dutch Books’ Ball on the eve of the 78th Book Week. Its theme is “Golden age–Black pages‘. The Book Week began today and will last until March 24.

The Boekenbal was in the great hall of the city theater in Amsterdam last night. After author Maartje Carrot had spoken about a golden page in Dutch history, Mc Leod spoke about ‘a black page’: slavery, making the Dutch ​​the most cruel slave masters. Sentences in general at that time were not very nice, but punishment for slaves was even worse than that. For running away, theft or rebellion the punishment was: [mutilation or torture to death].
