The Devil's Paradise

Upon his arrival, Christopher Columbus considered the Caribbean a real Paradise on Earth. Therefore, the islands were conquered in the name of God and the Spaniards’ Catholic Kings. However, within a few days, he conceived a master plan to transform the paradise into a veritable hell, setting the stage for the slavery, incessant migrations, power's abuses, terror, and violence that has marked the region for the last five hundred years.
