The exhibition “Change Begins with Us” – Human Rights Day 2017.


The Day of Human Rights is celebrated every year on December 10th. This is the day when the General Assembly of the United Nations passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. For the first time in the history of mankind, the right of all people to “life, freedom and security without any distinction” was recognized.

This year, the Human Rights Day celebrates the seventies anniversary of the adoption of a document that outlines the inalienable individual rights – regardless of race, gender, religion, language, political, national, material or other grounds. Since then it has been translated into more than 500 languages.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights enriches and empowers every individual. The principles discussed in 1948 and formally formulated are still relevant today. The emphasis is on the desire and initiative of the individual in representing their own and other rights.

It is important to take the initiative in everyday life and support the rights that protect us and thus promote the link of all human beings.

With this idea, the EFOS Library has decided to host this year’s Human Rights Day with a new exhibition that will consider and learn about equality and freedom.

The change begins with us:
