This digital exhibition has been developed by the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (CWGF) as part of the History Makers programme.

The History Makers scheme funds museums to create new exhibitions that will inspire the public through the lives and achievements of extraordinary, historical figures. The scheme is managed by the Association of Independent Museums (AIM) and Biffa Award, a multi-million-pound fund that helps to build communities and transform lives through awarding grants to communities and environmental projects across the UK as part of the Landfill Communities Fund.

CWGF has been working with young women and girls from the Girlguiding organisation to reinterpret the story of Noor, helping to make it relevant and engaging for a younger generation of visitors.

The CWGF is the CWGC’s charitable foundation. Find out more at
