Marian Rejewski Monument

  ul. Gdańska     more than a year ago
A monument to one of Bydgoszcz's greatest minds - the man who helped crack the German Enigma Code during WWII, Marian Rejewski. Working for Polish Military Intelligence with two other young Poles, Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Różycki, Rejewski (1905-1980) made the first vital breakthrough using a mathematical theorem since described as 'the theorem that won World War II'. The successful cracking of Enigma and the subsequent use of its intelligence at the famous Bletchley Park in England is believed to not only have shortened the war by some three years, but almost certainly to have saved Europe from a nuclear catastrophe. This monument, portraying Rejewski sitting modestly on a bench with a notepad, was created by Michał Kubiak and unveiled in 2005.
