BREAKING THE ENIGMA CODE – One WWII event that changed the world!

Rochester Hills Public Library
Multipurpose Room

Event Details

In the early part of World War II, the British were able to secure the German’s

Enigma Machine….a code system that was “unbreakable.”  Alan Turing, professor

of mathematics at Cambridge and his team at Bletchley Park north of London broke

the code early and provided Churchill and the allied Commanders with intercepted

messages from the Germans.  Experts forecasted that this code breaking with this

new technology saved the lives over 2 million soldiers and citizens and reduced the

war by 2-3 years.

 

How was this code broken?  How was it used during WWII? Turing’s genius

created a machine that intercepted the German’s code and help the Allies –

the first known computer! What happened to Turing?  What impact did this new

machine have on the world today?
