1. How did you first learn about Noor?
I first learned about Noor Inayat Khan when my dad encouraged me to read the Saudi Aramco world – The Middle East’s New Lenses. As I was reading the articles within this magazine, I came across a page about Noor Inayat Khan; I was so intrigued by her story. From the article, I learned about the film, Enemy of the Reich, and that was when I realized that I really wanted to share her story and do my project on her.

Noor Inayat Khan‘s identity as a Muslim woman did not stop her from signing up to join the fight against the Nazis. Motivated by her faith, Noor’s worldview was based on a respect for all faiths against Hitler’s ideology of ethnic and religious extermination. She suffered the same fate as millions o…

Thanks, Tasnim, for this really nice write-up on the film!…/enemy-of-the-reich-the-noor-inaya…/

A few months ago, I wrote about the “rediscovery” of Noor Inayat Khan, from the 2011 campaign to commemorate her, to the biography, Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan by Shrabani Basu to the planned docu-drama, which at the time I had not yet watched.

Great write up from our screening in Jacksonville! If you're interested in hosting a screening, let us know by filing out our 'start a dialogue' form here:

The quiet unwavering heroism of a young Indian Muslim woman who sacrificed her life to fight against Nazi domination during World War II offers lessons of faith, courage and inspiration as relevant now as it was back then say those who heard her story Sunday.

"Very few people are aware of the role of Muslims in WWII; how they played a significant role by providing safety to Jews against Nazi oppression. The Grand Mosque in Paris gave protection to Jewish cabaret singer, Simon Halali and the Franco-Muslim Hospital provided shelter to people, irrespective of their faith. Likewise, Algerian Muslim immigrants fought along with French troops.

This docudrama, therefore, defies the allegations that Muslims are anti-Semitic. It that Muslims and Jews can work together for a better cause. Khan’s laudable anecdote gives a vital message to both Muslims and other communities to have a good understanding of what Islam really stands for. Amidst the on-going Israel-Palestine conflict, this movie makes one wonder whether this animosity is inherent. History shows us that Muslims helped the Jews in times of need and never really protested till their land was being taken over."

This docodrama proves that Muslims are not anti-Semitic. They helped many Jews to work towards a better cause.

Listen to this great interview on the BBC about Noor Inayat Khan's role in WW II.

"Noor Inayat Khan led an unusual life. Born in Moscow in 1914, she was a direct descendent of an 18th century Indian Muslim ruler, later becoming an accomplished musician and children’s author. But then the Second World War broke out, and she was recruited by British spies to help the French resistance. Documentary maker Alex Kronemer has been telling her remarkable story."
