Mathematician Alan Turing Birthday

What happened on June 23?

Breaker of the famous Enigma code, cryptanalyst Alan Turing (*1912) sings the opening song to today’s party with Duffy (*1984).

The International Olympic Committee was founded at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1894, at the initiative of Baron Pierre de Coubertin. If code-breaking were an Olympic discipline, Alan would’ve been very successful.

Football icon Zinedine Zidane (*1972) and actor Joel Edgerton (*1974) distribute the drinks among the guests, as they sit down for a grand show.

Singer and guitarist Jason Mraz (*1977) warms up the crowd when the lights are slowly dimmed to re-live two classics on the movie screen. Pocahontas was released by Disney in 1995, one year after Forrest Gump conquered our hearts in 1994.

Sonic the Hedgehog gained a big fan base after its release in 1991. And we are very happy that Nik Wallenda didn’t release himself too soon in 2013 when he became the first man to successfully walk across the Grand Canyon on a tight rope!
