Shadow Puppet – Celebrating Australia’s Baha’i Centenary

April 14, 2020, in Videos > Arts, by

This short shadow puppet show tells the story of Clara and John Henry Hyde Dunn. It briefly tells their journey from accepting the Baha’i Faith in America to selflessly arising to travel to the far-off continent of Australia, 100 years ago. 

You can find out more about the history of the Baha’i Faith in Australia here: centenary.bahai.org.au

We also shared a short tribute to Clara Dunn. You can read the article here, Remembering Clara Dunn, and you can listen to a reading of that same article here on Baha’i Blog.
