Episode 21 - Noor Inayat Khan Dead Ladies Show Podcast

    • Society & Culture

The Dead Ladies Show is a series of entertaining and inspiring talks about women who achieved amazing things against all odds, presented live in Berlin. This podcast is based on that series. Because women's history is everyone's history.

In this episode, Dead Ladies Show co-founder Katy Derbyshire presents the surprising and inspiring tale of war hero Noor Inayat Khan.

NOOR INAYAT KHAN came from a regal Indian family — her father was an acclaimed Sufi musician who helped spread the spiritual practice to the West, including to Noor’s American mother. Noor was a talented musician and writer, a true beauty, and also a brave pacifist who worked as a secret radio operator for the British in occupied Paris during World War II. She is considered Britain’s first Muslim war hero and was posthumously awarded the George Cross for her service to the Secret Operations Executive.
