Criminalistic expert and cryptologist - this page is a stub

Siegfried Carl Türkel (31 January 1875 - 20 April 1933), his surname also written as Tuerkel, was a lawyer and scientific director at the criminal institute of the Austrian Federal Police in Vienna (Austria). He was a statistician, criminal psychiatrist, crime chemist and — to a certain extent — cryptologist. In 1927, he published Chiffrieren mit Geräten und Maschinen (ciphering with devices and machines), in which he even mentions the early commercial Enigma cipher machines [a].
