Human rights: what could be more British than that?
Published on 29 Nov 2019
It’s 1945 and World War II is finally over.
The Nuremberg Trials are held to bring justice for the millions who lost their lives to the Nazi’s. But how do you ensure that something like this never happens again? Lawyer and politician David Maxwell Fyfe had a hand in the answer: the European Convention of Human Rights.
Learn out how it all happened, and why it’s so important to remember the experiences of the past.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
