Curt Herzstark and a remarkable machine

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Soviet soldiers. To mark this, the UCL Museums & Collections blog discusses the story of one of their objects, the Curta calculator: how it saved the life of its inventor, and allowed him to save the lives of others at Buchenwald Concentration Camp.

University College London: London's Global University
Introduction
Welcome to UCL (University College London), London's leading multidisciplinary university with 10,000 staff and 29,000 students. Our university is a modern, outward-looking institution, committed to engaging with the major issues of our times. One of the world’s leading multidisciplinary universities, UCL today is a true academic powerhouse.

UCL is among the world's top universities, as reflected in performance in a range of rankings and tables. 

We have a global reach and global vision. 34% of UCL students come from outside the UK, attracted from 150 countries around the globe. 

UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, race or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
