Forgotten history: Muslims who sheltered Jews


The group "I Am Your Protector" marked Holocaust Memorial Day Jan. 27 by celebrating the often forgotten stories of Muslims who helped Jews to survive during the genocide. With interfaith ceremonies in several European and American cities, IAYP commemorated figures such as Noor Inayat Khan, the "Spy Princess" of royal Indian lineage who served as a British secret agent in Nazi-occupied Paris, operating a clandestine radio transmitter to coordinate with the Resistance before being captured by the Gestapo and put to death at the Dachau concentration camp.
