Poland’s Crucial Role in Cracking Enigma Code

The “Enigma Recaptured” campaign will form part of a drive to highlight Poland’s important role in World War Two.  The Polish National Tourist Office (PNTO) is also organising a very special Polish event at the Buckinghamshire museum to commemorate 70 years since the start of the war.

Along with Polish films, exhibitions, and entertainment several distinguished speakers will talk at the event on 19 July. Topics addressed will include life in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation and of course Poland’s vital efforts in unlocking the secrets of the Enigma puzzle.

Polish input into modern history is a key theme for the PNTO in the 70th anniversary year of the Second World War.  British tourists will be invited to discover places of historical importance in Poland such as Gdansk-Westerplatte where the war began, the Auschwitz concentration camp and once-occupied cities including Warsaw, Krakow and Bydgoszcz.
