 About Noor Inayat Khan

 

Noor Inayat Khan was a young Muslim heroine who joined the British network of spies sending coded messages between England and the French Resistance.  

The daughter of a Sufi Master from India, and an American mother, Noor grew up in a Sufi interfaith center in Paris, where she was living when the Nazi invasion occurred.

Resisting numerous opportunities to escape to safety, Noor’s selfless decision to aid the resistance (and save countless lives) ultimately cost her own.
