I think its absolutely disgusting for the British and Pro-Brits.. who made movies like "Enigma" and "Imitation Game", which give ZERO credit to the Polish people who were the ones who FIRST broke the difficult Nazi German code Enigma... and NOT the Brit Alan Turing.

Polish people get NO credit for breaking the Enigma Code in Pro-British/Anti-Polish PROPAGANDA movies like "Imitation Game" and "Enigma"

Its a movie made for entertainment. there is nothing to stop a Polish director making his own version of the story and marketing it.

Why would a film about Alan Turing's life be used to propagate information about the history of other countries?

A bit like saying that when the Americans made the Ron Burgundy film they should have constantly reminded viewers that television was invented by a Scotsman...

yeh mediawatch apparently you will find that actually the movie 'Enigma' gave credit to the Americans! Ignoring both the Polish mathemeticians AND ' the Brit' Turing and the rest of the team at Bletchley!

And the French intelligence service who obtained the data the Poles needed to reverse-engineer a three-rotor machine. And the German spy who got that data in the first place. Not that it enabled anybody to crack the four-, five-, six-, or seven-rotor machine the Nazis used.
