N ~ Noor Inayat Khan

  • Save

Raised in Britain and France and a descendant of Indian royalty, bilingual Noor Inayat Khan was recruited by the elite Special Operations Executive (SOE) in 1942 to work in Paris as a radio operator.

Within 10 days of her arrival, all the other British agents in Khan’s network had been arrested. She ended up doing the work of six radio operators and her transmissions became the only link between the agents around the Paris area and London.

After evading capture for three months, Noor was imprisoned, tortured and eventually shot by the German Gestapo. Her final word - was simple. "Liberte".
