A winter lecture series at Bletchley Park will feature stories from World War Two.
Bletchley Park’s Winter Lecture Series 2012/2013 will include stories on topics such as the Perfect Nazi, a spying arm of the British Army in Cold War Germany and Hitler’s so-called impregnable Atlantic wall, as well as many more fascinating tales and talks.
The series kicks off with a lecture by Geoffrey Greaves on BRIXMIS, a small and virtually unknown unit of the British Army based in East Germany. It formed a legitimate but reciprocal spying operation which ran throughout the Cold War. Geoffrey’s talk is on October 11.
In 1926, at the age of 20, a trainee dentist called Bruno Langbehn joined the Nazi Party. Eighty years on, his British grandson was appalled when he found out, and began a quest. Martin Davidson tells the story of the Perfect Nazi on January 10 next year.
On March 14, Chris Shaw will talk about German concrete defences in the Channel Islands, Hitler’s so-called Atlantic Wall, which stretched from Norway to Spain.
This is just a taste of what’s in store during this year’s Winter Lecture Series at Bletchley Park. To find out more visit The Bletchley Park website Tickets cost £10 for one lecture or £50 for the whole series.
