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.
Mr. Hartmut Grossmann, former member of the Universal House of Justice from 2003-2008 passed away on December 17, 2017 after a long and distinguished life in service to the Baha’i Faith and its principles. In its tribute to him, the Universal House of Justice writes: “A distinguished son of an illustrious father, he poured out his life in uninterrupted service to the Cause of Baha’u’llah, as a teacher, pioneer, and member of the National Spiritual Assemblies of Germany and Finland, the Continental Board of Counsellors in Europe, the International Teaching Centre and, ultimately, of the Universal House of Justice.”
In this interview filmed in New Zealand and originally aired in 2014 on Baha’i on Air, Mr. Hartmut Grossmann shares his insightful, poignant, and charmingly direct insights into a life dedicated to this world embracing Faith.

Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
Hi Neysan, thank you so much for providing us with this interview.
Could you please add place and time, when this was recorded? I understand it was New Zealand, when Mr. Grossmann was still a member of the House, thus before 2008.
