In 1943, Noor Inayat Khan was recruited as a covert operative into Winston Churchill's Special Operations Executive. With an American mother and Indian Muslim father, she was an extremely unusual British agent. After her network collapsed, Khan became the only surviving radio operator linking the British to the French Resistance in Paris, coordinating the airdrop of weapons and agents, and the rescue of downed Allied fliers.

Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story brings to life the story of a woman's extraordinary courage, tested in the crucible of Nazi-occupied Paris. With an American mother and Indian Muslim father, Noor Inayat Khan was an extremely unusual British agent, and her life spent growing up in a Sufi center of learning in Paris seemed an unlikely preparation for the dangerous work to come. Yet it was in this place of universal peace and contemplation that her remarkable courage was forged.

In early 1943, Khan was recruited as a covert operative into Winston Churchill's Special Operations Executive (SOE). Churchill's orders: to "Set Europe ablaze". After the collapse and arrest of her entire network, Khan became the only surviving radio operator linking the British to the French Resistance in Paris, coordinating the airdrop of weapons, explosives, and agents and supporting the rescue of downed Allied fliers.

Betrayed by a French collaborator after four months, Khan resisted brutal interrogation by the Gestapo, escaping twice - only to be recaptured and sent to Germany where, at last, she was executed at Dachau.

Enemy of The Reich
Review by Cindy on 05/15/21 review stating Enemy of The Reich
Good background documentary of the life of Noor Inayat Khan, a radio operator for the British in WWII. Ms. Khan ended her short life as a spy in France for the British. She was caught by the French gestapo and was sent to the Dachau Concentration Camp. She never gave up anyone, and was executed at Dachau. A very interesting documentary.

As an agent for the British during WWII, Ms Noor Inayat Khans contribution to the defeat of the Third Reich should be much better known. Her extraordinary background and the use she made of it has produced a very compelling film.

Noor Inayat Khan was an extraordinary young woman who sacrificed her life in order to aid the Resistance. Her courage is an inspiration and this film brilliantly depicts her remarkable life. I highly recommend it.
