Noor Inayat-Khan, was a British heroine of World War II renowned for her service in the Special Operations Executive. Khan showed her dedication by maintaining contact with London to forewarn possible false attacks by German forces, while being hunted by the Gestapo. Even after her capture in 1943 her commitment endured preventing any dangerous information leaking into the hands of the enemy by remaining silent while suffering under aggressive torture techniques in a German prison. Noor was executed alongside three other female spies in Dachau Concentration Camp in 1944. For showing such courage she received the George Cross medal in 1949.
