A Highly Particular Way of Looking In her discussion of the series of television documentaries De Oorlog [The War] in bmgn/lchr 125:1 (2010) 73-99, Barbara Henkes gives an incorrect impressionof the intentions of the programme makers. My response will in the first placeconsist of an exposition of these intentions: principally, to give the best possiblepresentation of current insights on the basis of recent academic research toa very wide audience. I will then discuss a number of more specific issues ingreater detail. In particular, I make the strongest possible objection to theaccusation that the makers have pushed morally reprehensible viewpointsonto the audience. Henkes presents no evidence whatsoever to supportthese accusations, and fails to explain what was actually, factually incorrectin the series. This makes her article nothing more than an (attempt at) moraldisqualification.
