'Certain uncertainties' or Venturing progressively into colonial apologetics?

  • Werner Hillebrecht

Abstract

This article deals with Brigitte Lau's contentious article "Uncertain certainties" of 1988. The author explains the controversy sparked by the article and refutes her call for a revision of the historiography of the war of 1904-08; further, the article's echo is contextualised and explained in terms of a specific Namibian-German psychological reaction to the trauma of 20th century German history among Namibian Germans.
