The chapter’s D&I committee is hosting an interesting, educational afternoon movie, Enemy of the Reich, the Noor Inayat Khan Story. 

In August 1943, the last surviving clandestine radio operator in Paris desperately signaled London for additional weapons and explosives for the French underground. She knew her time was limited. Within a month, she too would be taken.

Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story is the story of one 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.

Narrated by Academy Award winning actress Dame Helen Mirren, Enemy of the Reich was produced and directed by three-time Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Robert H. Gardner. With a team of international scholars and two of her surviving family members, the documentary was filmed in a cinematic style that brings the story of Noor Inayat Khan vividly to life. The production is a presentation of Unity Productions Foundation.

Chapter members, business partners, their families, and the members of Temple Judea are invited to spend Sunday, July 16, from 2:00 – 4:00 watching this 60-minute documentary, followed by a discussion lead by Rabbi Judith Siegal.  The temple is located US1 across from UM at 5500 Granada Blvd., Coral Gables, 305.667.5657.  Light refreshments will be provided.  Registration information to follow.
