75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

On 10 December 2023, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

In an online exhibit, the UN-library in New York, Dag Hammarskjöld Library, presents a selection of 30 key documents related to the 30 articles that constitute the Declaration.


The Declaration's 30 articles underpin international human rights law and provide a common global standard for human rights at the country and regional level. It 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.

Uppsala's Dag Hammarskjöld

September 18 is it the 60th anniversary of the passing of Dag Hammarskjöld. We honor his memory with this film about Hammarskjöld's Uppsala.

The memories of Uppsala remained close to the former Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld throughout his whole life. This is where he spent his childhood and his years as a young student, and this also became his final resting place.

This short documentary about Dag Hammarskjöld's time in Uppsala connects his story with the town of today.
