International Human Rights Day
Monday, December 10
On this landmark date in contemporary history, the nations of the world joined together to try to bury, once and for all, the spectra of genocide raised by the Second World War. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was one of the first major achievements of the United Nations and provided the basic philosophy for many legally-binding international instruments to follow.
