December 1, 2008 – April 1, 2009
The Rockefeller Library is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights from December 1, 2008 – April 1, 2009 with a special exhibit in the lobby. Spurred on by the atrocities committed during World War II, this document was ratified by the General Assembly on December 10, 1948 to designate universal, inalienable rights that every man, woman and child would enjoy. It became the “common standard of achievement” that many nations and international organizations used as they constructed laws and constitutions to protect people’s rights.
Take a break for pizza and more in the Sciences Library / Friedman Study Center, Level A, Wednesday, December 10 at 9 pm or Thursday December 11 at 9 pm in the Rockefeller Library lobby.
