Noor Un Nisa Inayat Khan Madeleine

by Jean Overton Fuller, Noor Un Nisa Inayat Khan Madeleine Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Noor Un Nisa Inayat Khan Madeleine book, Noor Inayat Khan (1914-1944) was SOE's first woman wireless transmitter in German Occupied Paris during World War II. Posthumously awarded the George Cross MBE and Croix de Guerre with Gold Star for her outstanding wartime service and heroism on behalf of the Allied cause, Noor's remarkable and inspiring life have been commemorated in numerous war memorials, WWII histories, and several films. Born to an American mother, Ora Ray Baker, and an Indian Sufi father, Hazrat Inayat Khan, Noor was raised in France, studying music under Nadia Boulanger and child psychology at the Sorbonne. Her children's stories appeared in Le Figaro and were broadcast over Radiodiffusion Francaise, and her book Twenty Jataka Tales was published in London. Her writing career was interrupted by the German invasion of France in 1940. The Inayat Khan family fled to England, and Noor enlisted in the WAAF where she trained as a wireless transmitter. Her Parisian background and wireless skills led to her recruitment by the SOE (Special Operations Executive). In 1943 she was secretly flown back to France where she began her undercover work under the code name "Madeleine." Constantly on the move between multiple locations and using false identities, Noor transmitted messages for the SOE's French and RF (République Française) sections, and for De Gaulle's Free French network. Betrayed by an acquaintance, she was captured by the Gestapo and held for interrogation in Paris. After repeated escape attempts, she was deemed a dangerous prisoner and transferred to Pforzheim prison in Germany, where she was held in maximum security and solitary confinement. As the war drew to an end in the fall of 1944, Noor was transported to Dachau, where she was executed. Her last word before being shot was "Liberté!" This new edition of "Noor-un-nisa: Madeleine" includes previously unpublished material including a retrospective by Noor's brother Vilayat Inayat Khan, Noor friendship with the author, and further research on Noor's life and the SOE.

Tracing An Indian Diaspora

by Parvati Raghuram, Tracing An Indian Diaspora Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Tracing An Indian Diaspora book, The concept of diaspora has been much debated during the past decade in terms of the essential and additional features that go with it, arguing which groups or communities could beuld not be designated as diaspora. The Indian diaspora today, with a strong community constituting more than 20 million and spreading across a hundred countries, continues to grow in size and making its transnational presence felt. This collection of essays traces some of the plurality with the Indian context as well as in the context of globalization, and transnationalism. The book discusses the migratory movements that have led to the formation of the Indian diaspora and formation to diasporic practices-the ways and means of remembering and enacting diasporic belonging and the sites and spaces where such narratives of belonging are performed and how these issues are played out through texts, and rituals such as pilgrimages and building temples.

The Second World War

by Martin Gilbert, The Second World War Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Second World War book, “Mr. Gilbert brings the strongest possible credentials to his history of World War II, and the result is a magisterial work” (The New York Times). In the hands of master historian Martin Gilbert, the complex and compelling story of the Second World War comes to life. This narrative captures the perspectives of leading politicians and war commanders, journalists, civilians, and ordinary soldiers, offering gripping eyewitness accounts of heroism, defeat, suffering, and triumph. This is one of the first historical studies of World War II that describes the Holocaust as an integral part of the war. It also covers maneuvers, strategies, and leaders operating in European, Asian, and Pacific theatres. In addition, this book brings in survivor testimonies of occupation, survival behind enemy lines, and the experience of minority groups such as the Roma in Europe, to offer a comprehensive account of the war’s impact on individuals on both sides. This is a sweeping narrative of one of the most deadly wars in history, which took almost forty million lives, and irrevocably changed countless more. “Gilbert’s flowing narrative is spiced with anecdotal details culled from diaries, memoirs, and official documents. He is especially skillful at interweaving summaries of military strategy with vignettes of civilian suffering.” —Newsweek “[A] masterful account of history’s most destructive conflict.” —Publishers Weekly

Der Junge Aus Der Letzten Reihe

by Onjali Q. Raúf, Der Junge Aus Der Letzten Reihe Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Der Junge Aus Der Letzten Reihe book, In der letzten Reihe unseres Klassenzimmers gab es immer einen leeren Platz. Doch jetzt sitzt dort ein Junge namens Ahmet. Er hat graue Augen, ist neun Jahre alt (genau wie ich) und verhält sich ein bisschen komisch. Aber inzwischen weiß ich, warum: Ahmet kommt aus einem Land, in dem Krieg herrscht und aus dem er fliehen musste. Ganz ohne seine Eltern! Seit ich weiß, dass Ahmet ›Tim und Struppi‹ genauso sehr mag wie ich, will ich seine beste Freundin sein. Deshalb müssen wir ihm unbedingt dabei helfen, seine Eltern wiederzufinden! Die Einzige, die uns dabei unterstützen kann, ist die Queen. Aber wie kommen wir nur in den Buckingham-Palast?
