This evening celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the lives of the Jewish Human Rights heroes behind it. Raphael Lemkin coined the term genocide and was the moving force behind the Genocide Convention; René Cassin co-authored the UDHR; and Hersch Lauterpacht brought crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression into modern international law, via the Nuremberg Trials. Philippe Sands QC, barrister and award-winning author of ‘East West Street’, and human rights barrister and blogger Adam Wagner, will contextualise the achievements of these human rights heroes, bringing the story up to the modern day.

12 December - event at JW3 with Francesca Klug

Exhibition Rene Cassin Londres

Commemorative Lecture The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70 A Time to Celebrate or a Time to Mourn? Professor Francesca Klug OBE In 1948, the Universal Declaration was the world’s response to the horrors of the Holocaust. Seventy years on, should we be celebrating its vision as the foundation of human rights law, or mourning its inability to prevent subsequent abuses? And what can we learn from a document drawn up to counter the nationalism and intolerance of the 1930s and 40s in a world where those twin evils are once again on the rise? Throughout her career Francesca has written and lectured widely on human rights. Her most recent book, A Magna Carta for all Humanity, homing in on human rights was published in 2015 to coincide with the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. Francesca was awarded an OBE for services to human rights in 2002.

René Cassin – the Jewish Voice for Human Rights is a UK charity that draws on Jewish experience and values to advocate on behalf of other marginalised and vulnerable minorities. We are named after Monsieur René Cassin, the French-Jewish co-author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. www.renecassin.org
