The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme - 1 views

  •  
    The Discussion Papers Journal series is a compilation of papers written by leading Holocaust and genocide studies scholars from around the world. The series aims to engage the minds of students and spark lively discussions to expand their awareness of how hatred, discrimination and human rights abuses are shaping world events today. Teachers and students will examine what the implications are for the future and what could and should be done by the international community to stem the tide of violence, ensure the rule of law and protect the most vulnerable. The views expressed by these scholars do not necessarily reflect those of the United Nations.

    "A Aztec Account of the Conquest of Mexico

    In 1519 Hernan Cortés sailed from Cuba, landed in
    Mexico and made his way to the Aztec capital. Miguel Leon­Portilla, a
    Mexican anthropologist, gathered accounts by the Aztecs, some of which were
    written shortly after the conquest.
    Speeches of Motecuhzoma and
    Cortés
    When Motecuhzoma [Montezuma] had given necklaces to each one,
    Cortés asked him: "Are you Motecuhzoma? Are you the king? Is it true that you
    are the king Motecuhzoma?"
    And the king said: "Yes, I am Motecuhzoma." Then
    he stood up to welcome Cortés; he came forward, bowed his head low and addressed
    him in these words: "Our lord, you are weary. The journey has tired you, but now
    you have arrived on the earth. You have come to your city, Mexico. You have come
    here to sit on your throne, to sit under its canopy.
    "The kings who have gone
    before, your representatives, guarded it and preserved it for your coming. The
    kings Itzcoatl, Motecuhzoma the Elder, Axayacatl, Tizoc and Ahuitzol ruled for
    you in the City of Mexico. The people were protected by their swords and
    sheltered by their shields.
    "Do the kings know the destiny of those they left
    behind, their posterity? If only they are watching! If only they can see what I
    see!
    "No, it is not a dream. I am not walking in my sleep. I am not seeing
    you in my dreams.... I have seen you at last! I have met you face to face! I was
    in agony for five days, for ten days, with my eyes fixed on the Region of the
    Mystery. And now you have come out of the clouds and mists to sit on your throne
    again.
    "This was foretold by the kings who governed your city, and now it
    has taken place. You have come back to us; you have come down from the sky. Rest
    now, and take possession of your royal houses. Welcome to your land, my lords!
    "
    When Motecuhzoma had finished, La Malinche translated his address into
    Spanish so that the Captain could understand it. Cortés replied in his str

    "The New Laws of the Indies, 1542




    The Laws and ordinances newly made by His Majesty for the
    government of the Indies and good treatment and preservation of the Indians
    created a set of pro-Indian laws - so pro-Indian that they some had to be
    revoked in Mexico and in Peru due to settler opposition. where the viceroy was
    killed when he attempted to enforce them.

    The conflict was between "feudalists" who favored the
    encomienda system because it maintained society as in the Old World, and the
    more centralizing "regalists" who wanted to preserve royal power in Spain;s new
    Empire. Eventually the encomienda was allowed to continue.

    Charles by the divine clemency Emperor ever august, King of
    Germany. . . . To the Most Illustrious Prince Don Philip our very dear and very
    beloved grandson and son, and to the Infantes our grandsons and sons, and to the
    President, and those of our Council of the Indies, and to our Viceroys,
    Presidents and Auditors of our Audiencias and royal Chanceries of our said
    Indies, Islands and Continent of the Ocean Sea; to our Governors, Alcaldes
    mayores and our other Authorities thereof, and to all the Councils, magistrates,
    regidores, knights, esquires, officers, and commoners of all the cities, towns,
    and villages of our said Indies, Islands, and Tierra-firme of the Ocean Sea,
    discovered and to be discovered; and to any other persons, captains,
    discoverers, settlers, and inhabitants dwelling in and being natives thereof, of
    whatever state, quality, condition and pre-eminence they may be. . . .

    Know ye, That having for many years had will and intention
    as leisure to occupy ourselves with the affairs of the Indies, on account of
    their great importance, as well in that touching the service of God our Lord and
    increase of his holy Catholic faith, as in the preservation of the natives of
    those parts, and the good government and preservation of their persons; and

    "Amerigo Vespucci (1452-1512):
    Account of His First
    Voyage, 1497




    Amerigo Vespucci (born in Florence in 1452), whose name was
    given to the American continents by Waldsmuller in 1507, worked in Seville
    (where he died) in the business house which fitted out Columbus' second
    expedition. Here he gives an account of the first of his own four voyages. If
    his claims are accurate he reached the mainland of the Americas shortly before
    Cabot, and
    at least 14 months before Columbus.

    Letter of Amerigo Vespucci

    To Pier Soderini, Gonfalonier of the Republic of
    Florence"
