I never said that Spanish people were slave under Germans... But under the Spanish empire any European was fair game to become an owner of slaves or a boss in the Spanish empire... We have in Peru two towns inhabited by many Germans (although that happened a long time after the country became a republic)... "Dies" and "Diaz" are Spanish surnames (-ez means "son of" and "día" means "day) but the particle "-el" at the end of the word is unheard of in Spanish surnames... I guess we have Spanish words that end in it like "anaquel" but not Spanish surnames ("anaquel" is a flatboard mounted on a wall to store stuff, books and things you will sell mostly, it is a synonim of "estante")
