Slaves or Slavs

slavesThe classification and stigma of slavery is referred to in medieval Latin as sclavus, in relation to the Byzantine Greek sklábos, being a derivation of sklabēnós, which translates as ‘Slavic’, originally as a self-reference for the Slavic people, as slovĕninŭ, who were geographically located mostly in Eastern Europe, and who suffered the abuse of the Spanish Muslim community in the ninth century.

My Mother's parents migrated from North Western Poland in the 1940s.  My Father's parents migrated from North Eastern Germany in the 1860s.  Both came from the Eastern European region. 

So - they both came from the Slavic area.  So - they both came from areas where they were taken or used as slaves.  So - do I get reparations?
