A brief history of the formation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

World War II began in September 1939, and by June 1941, almost half of Europe had fallen to Germany and the Axis forces and was under extreme conservative fascist control. On January 1, 1942, 26 Allied Nations, led by the United States and Great Britain, created and signed a Declaration of the United Nations, their first official use of the term “United Nations” and their affirmation of universal human rights. United Nations leaders met yearly until World War II ended on August 9, 1945.

After President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s death in April 1945, President Harry Truman, a Democrat, appointed Vermont Senator Warren Austin, a Republican, as the soon-to-be UN Ambassador. Truman appointed First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt as the head of the international committee to create the UDHR.

Three years later, on December 10, 1948, in Paris, France, the USA was among 48 countries voting YES for the UDHR. Eight countries voted to abstain, including Russia and Saudi Arabia, and two countries didn’t vote.
