Noor Khan: WW2 Allied Spy

In my continued postings to show you why I went into #screenwriting and to bring awareness to the #people erased from #history or are severely marginalized, meet Noor Khan. A #WW2 spy.

Noor’s mother was from Alburqurque, New Mexico USA, and her dad was a noble Indo-Muslim. Noor’s family left Russia around her birth in 1914 to London, and then to Paris in 1920. In 1940, Noor joined the Women’s Auxiliary Force and was trained as a wireless operator. She was recruited to the Special Operations Executive (S.O.E.) in 1943 and her work as a spy began. Unfortunately, Khan was captured and executed at the Dachau Concentration Camp in 1944. She was 30.

To learn more about Noor, watch the 2014 documentary “Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan story,” starring Grace Srinivasan and narrated by Helen Mirren.

Inclusion matters. For more information about diversity in Hollywood movies, TV and streaming content, and how to write and live inclusively, check out my book, “How To Write Inclusively: An Analysis & How To Guide.” As The Inclusive Screenwriter, I consider my works as a contribution to my craft.
