After the second world war where nations lost thousands of leaders, soldiers and civilians, member countries of the United Nations decided to get together on 10 December 1948 to declare and sign a set of 30 articles or rules to protect the rights of all people from all countries. It’s called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and most countries worldwide vowed to abide by it. We have yet to see this fully realized in every corner of the globe as violations still happen to this day, but with efforts from civic society and governments, more people are being enlightened as to how we can be advocates of each other’s rights.
A book called We are All Born Free, published by The Guardian in association with human rights organization Amnesty International, makes the UDHR more engaging with each declaration artfully interpreted by internationally-renowned artists and illustrators. It’s perfect for children and adults alike.
