Enigma Machine


An authentic Enigma Machine from the armies museum in Paris, it was used to transmit coded documents by the german army during ww2.
I hope to have annoyed nobody with this one :)

  3. So… this was some kind of mechanical ZIP archiver if I got it right..

    Zee Germans used to be clever at the time, but I have the feeling that apparently something very very bad happened in meanwhile.

  4. Well we could call it crytpographic messenger machine i would say
    they were improving it but english had stolen one exemplary and they broke the key code
    They could anticipate the movements over the seas and the germans powerful U-boats, hunters of the ocean became prey
    Something happened maybe because of these machines…

  8. Excuse for intrusion, but at me not the big question. How you think how many people on the ground smoke and how many have ceased?
