De Enigma Lectures

The Enigma cryptographic machine became famous in WWII. For many years the Enigma was a top-secret device. It marked a turning point in the war. How did it work? How were the messages sent and how was the Enigma cracked in the end? On Bunkerdag, there will be an Enigma type M4 in the bunker in Dishoek.
For children there will be an electronic replica present on which they can decipher a piece of code. Dan de Bruijn will give the flash lectures about the Enigma continuously throughout the day.
