The Mechanized Warfare Museum of New England is extremely excited to announce that Professor Tom Perera will be in attendance and will be bringing some of his extremely rare WWII German Enigma cipher machines to our show in July.

The German military used Enigma cipher machines to encode all of their important communications. The breaking of these Enigma codes is credited with shortening the war by two years, saving thousands of lives, and perhaps keeping Hitler from producing an Atomic bomb. Professor Perera will be bringing several Enigmas and other WW-II cipher machines from his and display describe and demonstrate them.

Tom Perera is a retired professor of neuroscience who specialized in research on the coding of information in the human brain and nervous system. He has been hunting for, collecting, researching, restoring and writing about Enigmas and their history for over 30 years. He located and restored the Enigmas that appear in the “Imitation Game” and “Snowden”. He provides extensive Enigma information through his Enigma book, his lectures and his website:
