“The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 at Palais de Chaillot, Paris. The Declaration arose directly from the experience of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled.” (Wikipedia).
In French, the UDHR is La Déclaration Universelle des Droits de l’Homme.
It’s a must even if your French isn’t all that advanced, and a great way to improve your listening and reading skills. You can find an English translation of the 30 articles here.
