"The Slave Business", Neuchâtel
"I’ve been living in Neuchatel since years – and have often admired the beautiful manor property on walks. I found out where the riches for its construction came from thanks to this tour. And I heard for the first time about the entanglement of the Neuchatel folk in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Amongst other aspects, at eight stations I learned how the region’s Indienne manufacture generated a business upswing – and that slaves were taken back to the old homeland of their Swiss masters. Wandering through the Old Town and being able to gain an insight of past goings on I found great. I also appreciated the animated group talks thanks to the tour guides. "
