2021 Human Rights Day Digital Exhibit


The United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document in the history of human rights, on December 10, 1948. To help celebrate this, we invite you to peruse selected items both physically and digitally from the collection related to human rights and this declaration. This year's display is located above our DVDs shelf in the main reading room includes several titles with a home location in the Louis B. Sohn Library on International Relations.
