The Diaries of Khalil Sakakini: Diaries, Letters, Reflections. Volume 7: Sultana’s Death, 1939-1941
This volume is centered on the death of Khalil Sakakini's wife, Sultana, who died in October 1939, and the shattering of Sakakini's life with her loss. Khalil Sakakini mourned her for the rest of his days, wrote a number of poems eulogizing her, and authored the epitaph on her tombstone. He copes with his loss by total immersion in his new theories of education, attempting to inculcate his progressive ideas on the educational system in Palestine. The volume also contains various entries on daily life in Palestine in the aftermath of the great rebellion.
