UN Dag Hammarskjöld Library: 30 Key Documents for 70th Anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Dag Hammarskjöld Library at the United Nations headquarters in New York has created an online exhibit featuring 30 key legal documents that illustrate each of the 30 articles of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR):
"The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document that set out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected. The thirty articles that comprise the UDHR underpin international human rights law and provide a common global standard for human rights at the country and regional level."
"To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the signing of the UDHR, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library is presenting an exploration of thirty key documents related to the thirty articles that constitute the Declaration."
"The Declaration is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages. Adopted by General Assembly resolution 217 A (III) on 10 December 1948, it is still just as relevant in our world today."
