City/Town: Fribourg
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Centre le Phénix, Rue des Alpes 7, FR

I have ONE ticket for the event on Friday evening. First to sign up gets it!

It is organised by the British Residents' Asscociation (BRA)

CR - the Code-Breakers of Bletchley Park (London WW2)

Date: Friday, 21 March
Time: 19:00
Place: Centre le Phénix, Rue des Alpes 7, Fribourg
Cost: CHF 10

Kay Gillioz who worked at the secret code breaking establishment, Bletchley Park, in the Second World War, will be talking about her experiences. Bletchley is the compelling story of breaking the Enigma code used by German U-boats. It is also the story of Alan Türing, one of the driving forces behind the effort and who was the first to prove mathematically that a machine could be constructed to perform any mathematical task. Türing was largely considered to be the father of modern computing. The event will be in association with the Federation of Anglo Swiss Clubs.


RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Sorry, but
- too far away from my place
- I've read most of the books
- I've been to Bletchley Park
