Come My Children

Hekmat Al-Taweel (1922-2008) was a native Palestinian Christian from Gaza City whose narrative provides an unfamiliar perspective on Muslim–Christian relationships in Gaza, highlighting shared history, culture, customs, and traditions. In relating her life story, continuing education after marriage, volunteer work, activism, and aspirations, she invites readers to understand her experiences in a way that contradicts widespread Western orientalized stereotypes of Arab women. She also shares insights into life in Gaza during the British Mandate period and the 1948 Nakba and its aftermath. This is the third 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.
