Research, documentation & archives

The Arab Library does not have much information about Acre Prison and other detention prisons during the era of the British occupation of Palestine, nor about the procedures of administrative detention and the death penalty that these authorities practiced against Palestinian political detainees. However, some historians, political science professors, and biographers point out that The military courts of the British Mandate authorities issued fifty thousand administrative detention sentences in 1938 and more than two hundred life imprisonment sentences or high sentences, in addition to 148 death sentences that were actually implemented.

Therefore, it is important to research and document this era from its sources, which are British public records, to shed more light on the policy of detention and death penalty used by the British Mandate forces and on the close cooperation between them and the Zionist gangs against the Fedayeen and detainees and the policy of collective punishment against Palestinian civilians
