Human Rights

Baha’i Persecution Archives is a digital archive to bring together thousands of documents about the persecution of Baha’is in Iran.  Most documents are made public for the first time.  The extensive collection will be processed and published over time.  The archive is searchable, with downloadable images and text, in Persian and English. The aim is to provide a reliable and accessible source of documents of persecution of the Baha’i community in Iran.

This project is underway to create an oral history of the persecution of Baha’is in Iran, the largest non-Muslim religious minority in that country, who have been subjected to the longest and most extensive, violent and systematic government-sponsored violation of human rights in Iran’s modern history.
