"Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story" on PBS tonight


This looks interesting and definitely has an unfamiliar storyline. I will be in class at the time and will catch it later in the week. There is a South Asian connection here as well, as Noor Inayat Khan had an American mother and an Indian Muslim father. Here is a brief blurb about the documentary and a trailer below it (see more details about the film here):
Throughout the 1930’s, an unimaginable evil tore through Europe, as Hitler’s Third Reich terrorized its way to domination. During these tumultuous times, a young Muslim woman living in Paris found her calling. Noor Inayat Khan grew up in a home that fostered faith and hope. Leading with her heart, she overcame her quiet nature and joined Winston Churchill’s covert operation to give the Allies a new chance at victory. This is her story.
