    Not being able to leave when they wanted to and being forced to work for the Egyptian's leaders against their will qualifies the Israelite people to be considered slaves.   

    Referring to Moses as their savior, although the name of Moses with all of his Egyptian names were stricken from the ancient Egyptian historical records, there has been evidence found in some ancient texts that match the Biblical record of an adopted son to a high ranking relative.
    Moses was born of Hebrew parents making him truly Hebrew born. Since his true parentage is only recorded in the Bible, one may question it if not inclined to believe in the truth of the Bible. Since the Bible does record it in such a detailed manor, it matters that we know it and believe it.  I don't believe any of the information in the Bible is frivolously added.

      This question does not concern the Torah's narrative of the Exodus, but it's historicity.

    There's no historical and archeological proof that my Semitic Hebrew relatives were slaves in Ancient Egypt or that they lived in the Sinai desert for 40 years and the only proof is the repetition of the Hebrew Texts, the Torat and Tanak.

    Second, the biblical Prophet Moshe is none only than, A'aferti Mos Ankh-Aten who was Egyptian/Semite because his father was A'aferti Amenhotep the 3rd and his mother been Egyptian/Semite and the instigating power behind the Ancient Egyptian's A'aferti was Tiye the daughter of Yuya, which is none other than Iose ben Iaakov.

    It is interested to know that most members of humanity prefer to accept the Hebrew Byblos "Bible" based on a blind faith, which is based on repetition and not historical fact, but then, again I have always taught the teaching "Live and let others live", which means, "Believe as your own consciouness dictates you, but allow others to do the same without imposing your own egoistic views based on fears, and lack of wisdom."

    I thank you for your answer even if I don't agree with it.

    That is why they celebrate Passover. The liberation from the  bondage by the Egyptians.

    As far as record of them being in Egypt, there is proof.
    The Hebrews know and have their own history, as all other countries do.

      This question does not concern the Torah's narrative of the Exodus, but it's historicity. To say the Hebrews "know" their own history is to say that the Exodus tale was true to begin with and was transmitted perfectly.

    They were slaves but, as in the Nazi labor camps, they were slaves of the state, not of individual "owners."
