9780307588838: Freedom: Stories Celebrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Sixty years ago, the United Nations took a moral stand against human rights crimes and adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a proclamation of thirty rights that belong to us all, starting memorably with Article 1: “All human beings are born free and equal.”

Now, an array of internationally acclaimed writers have chosen one of the thirty rights as the inspiration for a short story. Published in association with Amnesty International, the result is a mix of thoughtful, serious, funny, and thrilling stories that harness the power of literature to celebrate—and affirm—our shared humanity.
