June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
A special edition Badi calendar (or Baha’i calendar) has been created for this year, 177 BE, in celebration of the centenary of the Baha’i Faith in Australia. Featuring historic photographs, this 22-page calendar includes Baha’i Holy Days and 19-Day Feasts from Naw-Ruz 2020 to March 2021.
The photos displayed are from the Australian national Baha’i archives and they highlight the growth of the Baha’i community, including key milestone events.
There are many photographs of Hands of the Cause of God Hyde and Clara Dunn, who traveled to Australia in 1920 to establish Baha’i communities.
