Edith Louise Cavell was a British nurse arrested for helping Allied soldiers escape from the Germans during World War 1. She was subsequently court-martialled, found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. She was shot by a German firing squad at the age of 49. Her execution was greeted with worldwide condemnation and extensive press coverage. A woman of profound faith, she told her chaplain, on the night before her execution, 'Standing as I do in view of God and eternity, I realize that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.' Her death caused international outrage and may have contributed to Americas decision to enter the war.
