Noor Inayat Khan Documentary

I already wrote about Noor Inayat Khan in April last year. She's one of the forgotten hero's of the Second World War. Noor was a Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent that operated behind enemy lines, in occupied France. As a wireless operator in Paris she held the most dangerous SOE post in France, with the SD Sicherheitsdienst (the Nazi intelligence service) constantly on her tail.

There's a 50 minutes five-part documentary called "The Princess Spy", in which her relatives go back in her traces to see what she did and how her life tragically and brutally came to and end. A gripping story.

Your can view parts [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] or start the video here below . At the end of each part the video shows a link to the next part (don't forget the maximize button at the bottom-right).

More on the story of Noor Inayat Khan and additional links on this previous post.
