With help of the cipher machine "Enigma" the German military encrypted its messages during the 2nd World War. To crack the system of the"Enigma" was considered to be one of the most important and decisive war objectives for the Allied forces. The shots in our shop from 1942 showing the "Enigma" machine are a rarity, as they are probably the only documents showing one of the greatest military secrets of the 2nd World War. We suppose those pictures have been filmed by a German soldier, who documented his deployment in the occupied Ukrainian city of Winniza with his 8mm camera. Experts consider this filmic discovery to be "a spectacular and first class document of the times".
