The introduction reads: “I write for you, my daughters, whose innocent faces shine with signs of dignity and hope for a good life; you, dear students of the Islamic Iran, graceful and intelligent. I also praise the courage of the girls, a little farther away, and about your age, whose homeland is invaded and their loved ones killed by the enemy, making them suffer intolerable pain and agony.”

Shahnaz Mohammadizadeh was born in the city of Khorramshahr in 1960, a city which was devastated during the Sacred Defense by the military forces of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
When she was studying as a senior in Economics, the war prevented her from continuing her studies. She was religiously inclined since her adolescence years and a political activist who participated in demonstrations and distributed pamphlets of Imam Khomeini. When the war began, she got active in rescue operations and was finally hit by a mortar as she was delivering supplies to soldiers at Golforoushi crossroad in Khorramshahr, and died.
