Alan Turing, genius problem solver, might have saved the world. He was homosexual, British & European

Alain Turing invented a machine to end all machines: The Computer

Mathematician and Kryptoanalyst Alan Turing OBE broke the enigma code machine of the Germans in WWII. Without him, the Nazi Third Reich might have completely sullied and destroyed Europe in the meantime. However, after the war, Great Britain, his country, tortured him with chemical castration, because he was homosexual. He killed himself two years later. While the British PM Gordon Brown finally apologized for Britains base acts in 2009, a petition for pardon of Alan Turing was still denied in 2011, and only granted in 2013. This genius, brave, and mistreated hero was British & European.
