Rene Cassin Remembered

7 December 2008

The BBC Radio 4 programme Sunday, Religious News & Current Affairs with Roger Bolton, marked the 60th anniversary of the publication of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  The programme featured a report by Trevor Barnes and discussion with Lord Richard Harris, former Anglican Bishop of Oxford, and Massoud Shadjareh, Chairman of the Islamic Human Rights Commission.

The report referred to the role of Rene Cassin, the representative of the Consultative Council of Jewish Organisations at the United Nations, in drafting the Declaration and features comments from Clemens Nathan, Cassin’s successor and also an Executive Member of the Anglo-Jewish Association.
