The Europeans treated the slaves really badly.They would squueze as many as they could onto a boat with a roof of 18 inches.They would kidnapp all of the strong people and if they were not strong they would beat them.They got food and in the ships it smelled really bad. Many people would die before they reached their destained land. Famlies got srprated and it was really scary
