  Edith Cavell Biography | World of Health
Head of a specialized school in Brussels, Belgium, for training nurses, Edith Cavell became part of a group that helped soldiers and other refugees escape from the German army during World War I. She was eventually arrested, tried by a German military court, and sentenced to death.
Cavell's execution turned out to be a serious blunder by the Germans, who were soon facing a widespread outcry as "murdering monsters." Cavell's death is credited with helping to strengthen Allied morale and doubling recruitment in the Allied army for nearly two months after her death.
Cavell's heroism was also honored by the naming of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, and in a movie and a play about her life and death.
