This chapter examines the themes of labor, conquest, and enslavement. It focuses on past events that are identified by Ambanja's youth as relevant to understanding the effects of the colonial legacy. It also studies the brutality of wartime conscription during World War I, and analyzes the quality of domestic corvée labor during peacetime as another form of enslavement.
