Letter of 1 April 1947

1 April 1947
The Germans, and the German Bahá’ís, have suffered terribly during these long years of war and suppression of all freedom and spiritual life; now, it seems, from reports reaching him, there is a revival of the spirit, and the people are longing for a plan, a way out of this moral chaos and darkness, a belief to hold to. This is therefore the time for the Bahá’ís to teach the Cause as never 63 before, especially to the young people, and spread the glad tidings that a solution to the world’s problems exists!
The German National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís is now doing all it can to get more Bahá’í books printed; it also has many new and important translations of our books already made, and we hope very soon these will be printed and distributed.
I am enclosing a little booklet which will give you an idea of how great the progress and spread of the Cause has been, and daily it is growing all over the world.
Shoghi Effendi hopes some-day, when Palestine is calmer, that you will be able to visit here.
