The Holocaust and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Jay Winter
The passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in December 1948 was the last act of World War II – and the first act of the post-war human rights movement. In the first in a three-part lecture series, running once per Wheeler Centre program throughout 2013, Jay Winter examines the role of René Cassin – drafter of the Universal Declaration – in making human rights a fundamental form of Holocaust commemoration.
Presented with the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University
