Martyrdom of the Bab

Clip: Season 17 | 3m

"The Martyrdom of the Báb commemorates the day when the Báb was finally taken before a firing squad in the northern Persian city of Tabriz," says Hillary Chapman, a Baha'i educator. It's "not a celebration, but a commemoration. But the use of the arts is very much encouraged as a way of kind of portraying the inner meaning of that day."
