Human Rights Day (established 1948)

December 10, 1948

The General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."

Since 1950 the anniversary of the declaration has been known as Human Rights Day.

Your calendar editor does not know if there are presently any nations where all the rights listed in the declaration are actually observed.
