Friend of the Bogue Banks Public Library meeting

 

Guest speaker Jim Bunch presents Recovering the M-4 Enigma Machine, an oral history.

 

Sunday, January 24 @ 3:00 p.m.

Free and open to the public

   

     During WWII the German navy used a cipher machine called Enigma to encipher and decipher messages. The machine was onboard of the U-85, one of the U-boats operating off the coast of the Outer Banks, and went down with the ship when it sank in April of 1942. The Enigma machine was not recovered and remained entombed in the U-boat until 2001 when it was found by a team of local divers.

     In this fascinating program oral history program, Bunch describes his first-hand efforts in the research, diving, discovery, and recovery of this machine. The presentation also outlines how the Enigma Machine works and its significance in World War II. The recovered Enigma machine is currently on display at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum where it was donated by the dive team and the German Government.
