Claus Taaks is a retired teacher and Russian-language interpreter, as well as a specialist on the Enigma and Kryha cipher machines. Since 2010, he has been researching the historical side of these machines (in particular the political, economic, and military conditions), as well as the biography of many people involved, such as Arthur Scherbius and Alexander von Kryha. His research began after he heard that his aunt, Elisabeth Pungs (1896-1945), was the wife of Arthur Scherbius, the inventor of the Enigma machine.
