Letter from wife Clementine to Churchill in 1940. "You are not so kind as you used to be."
"Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist. He who would gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore if it be goodness. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. Absolve you to yourself, and you shall have the suffrage of the world." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

The Enigma Machine was used by Germany in WW II to send coded messages. A message might be coded in any of 150,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible encryptions. The Allies' intelligence team working at Bletchley Park, England, with use of one of the world's first electromagnetic computers, were able to decode 10% of Germany's coded transmissions by war's end.
*Late 1930's - German, Austrian and Czechoslovakian children of Jewish descent were permitted to leave their countries and families on the Kindertransport; a train bound for Britain.
