Submitted by on 18/12/2017 – 4:21 pmNo Comment

To commemorate the International Human Rights Day (10 December of each year) and the upcoming 70th  anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the Codification Division of the Office of Legal Affairs has added a two-part interview with Judge Thomas Buergenthal by Professor Sean Murphy (respectively 43 and 53 minutes).

Judge Buergenthal shares some personal moments from his life, as well as his extensive experience in international law and, in particular, his continuous and multi-faceted contribution to the development of international human rights law. Those with a specific interest in international human rights law should watch these interviews. And, those interested in learning more about Judge Buergenthal’s incredible life story should try to read his excellent book, ‘A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy‘.

The United Nations Audiovisual Library of International Law is an excellent educational tool for those interested in studying and getting a better understanding of international law.
