Visited the Mahebourg museum. Surprised to discover so much history displayed in this 17th century French colonial mansion. Amazing collection especially the part about the maritime slave trade. You get the sense of the horror and cruelty of the slave trade when you see the drawings, paintings and documentation. Today’s descendants, “Creole Mauritians”, of the slave trade have no way of tracing their ancestors having lost their roots (nationality and original family names). In contrast the Indo-Mauritians can trace their family origins through the well documented, registered entries and photographs of their contract worker Indian ancestors who settled in Mauritius.
