February 9, 2018, in Videos > Interview, by

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.

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.
