Alan Turing is held in such high regard in the UK that his portrait is printed on the new £50 banknotes which came into circulation last Wednesday (25th June 2021).  A small recompense for the tragic story of his committing suicide following his being found guilty of the crime of being a homosexual.

During World War ll Bletchley Park was the top-secret home of the World War ll  code breakers. Some of you may have seen the movie-- The Oscar-nominated movie, The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley,  or read the book about the Enigma Machine or the Code Breakers or heard of Alan Turing.  There is now a website  https://bletchleypark.org.uk/. Included in their website is the roll of honor https://bletchleypark.org.uk/roll-of-honour where you can search names giving results of surname, given name service/rank/gender and summary of service. There were nearly 10,000 people who worked for the organization. I have put in the names Goldberg, Goldstein, Cohen, Freedman, Levy and they all appear.

 

Thank you to Jeanette Rosenberg, OBE JGS Great Britain  for sharing the information with us.
