What's in Your Archive?

My father's prayer bookThough it is pretty old and some pages are missing, this prayer book is very precious to me. It belonged to my dear father. It is always by my bed, and whenever I open it to say a prayer, I feel the warmth of his hands on it, bringing so much joy to my heart! Therefore, I will keep this book safe for my children and grandchildren as a family heritage.  

Why did this item go into your archive?

I want to pass the same feeling of connection to my next generation; the spirit of cherishing their ancestors. 

Why is it important to have an archive for the Bahá’í Community?

I believe we can be connected to the history of the Faith and our identity as a Bahá’í through the Bahá’í archives.
