GSU emerita professor to discuss WW II codebreaking
The cracking of Germany’s “Enigma” code during World War II was one of the Allies greatest, and perhaps underappreciated triumphs.

Janice Benario, associate professor emerita of languages at Georgia State University, will discuss her duties as a young naval ensign working with the codebreakers who cracked Enigma, Wednesday, April 24, at 6 p.m. in the Jones Room of Woodruff Library.

Her address is titled “TOP SECRET ULTRA: The Allies Secret Weapon in the Battle of the Atlantic.”

Breaking the Enigma code is generally seen as an essential step in the Allies victory over Germany’s U-Boats. “ULTRA” was the code name assigned to the British and Americans’ efforts to unlock the Enigma code machine.

The event is free and open to the public.
