Abstract:
Events in Isfahán and Yazd from March-September 1903.
Notes:
First published in 1904 as Bahá'í Martyrdoms in Persia in the Year 1903 AD, translated by Youness Khan Afrukhtih and incorrectly attributed to Haji Mirza Haydar-Ali. For most of the century following its publication, this book was believed to be by Haydar-Ali. However, in 2004, Rabbani and Khazeh Fananapazir concluded that the treatise was actually written by Abdu'l-Baha. See the earlier translation at haydar-ali_bahai_martyrdoms_1903. See also The Events and Tragedies of Manshád.

Rabbani re-translated the work in 2005 and both posted it on his website and submitted it to BSR for publication. Below is a PDF of the 2005 website version. Also see the 2007 version published by BSR in draft Word format, abdulbaha_treatise_persecutions_1903_bsr.doc, which has an expanded Preface.
