This video is called The History of the Dutch Slave Trade, 1600-1863.
From a press release by the university of Leiden in the Netherlands, it is apparent that Dutch slave trade in the eighteenth century was worse than historians thought so far.
According to the new PhD thesis of historian Ruud Paesie, people had unterestimated the number of slaves brought from Africa to the Americas by Dutch ships which illegally broke the slave trade monopoly of the Dutch West India Company.
Paesie estimates that from 1700 to 1730, apart from the 80,000 slaves transported by the Dutch West India Company, at least 40,000 have been transported on illegal ships.
