Bee Nazi Misidentified

“A film review on Wednesday about the documentary ‘More Than Honey’ referred incorrectly to a discussion of the history of raising a hardy Alpine breed of black bee at the beginning of the film, and misidentified the person who believes in the ‘racial purity’ of the black bee and says it is threatened by a yellow striped bee. While Markus Imhoof, the director, is descended from a long line of Swiss beekeepers and discusses his family’s history, the discussion of the black bee is about the raising of the breed by a Swiss beekeeper, Fred Jaggi, not about the Imhoof clan’s raising of that bee. And it is Mr. Jaggi, not Mr. Imhoof, who believes in the bee’s ‘racial purity’ and sees it as threatened.”
