Sahbaa Al-Barbari’s story provides a unique perspective on Palestinian experience before and after the 1948 Nakba. Born in Gaza, Al-Barbari began her career as a school teacher and was an activist in her community. When Israel occupied the Gaza Strip in 1967, Al-Barbari was exiled from Palestine, continuing her activism as she lived in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus, Kuwait, Tunis, Libya, and Europe. Al-Barbari returned to Gaza in 1996. This is the second book in the Women’s Voices from Gaza series, which honours women’s unique and underrepresented perspectives on the social, material, and political realities of Palestinian life. The books in this series will benefit Middle East scholars, social justice and human rights advocates, and all who want to know more about the modern history of Palestine.
