Spy Princess — The Story of Noor Inayat Khan
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
NOOR INAYAT KHAN was the daughter of a Sufi Indian father and an American mother, and she grew up in Paris and London. As a British agent under the codename MADELEINE, she became the first female radio operator to be sent from the UK into occupied France to aid the French Resistance during World War II. She was captured after being betrayed, and executed at Dachau, where her last word was Liberté! She was posthumously awarded the George Cross, the highest civilian decoration in the United Kingdom, and there is now a statue of her in central London.
Watch her story below.
