These stamps feature the second group of six Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Each piece of art was adapted as a stamp by Rocco J. Callari and Robert Stein of the United States. On December 10, 1948, the General Assembly unanimously adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. For the first time in history, responsibility for the protection and pursuit of human rights was assumed by the international community. While the United Nations Postal Administration’s Human Rights Series is based upon the Declaration, it does more than commemorate a document signed over 40 years ago. It publicizes a living and continuing standard of conduct for every government to abide by with respect to all people under their jurisdiction.
   
Article Eleven and “Before the Judge” are illustrated on Vienna’s s4.50 stamp.  The artist is Sandar Bihari, Hungary, and the painting was used courtesy of the Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest. s7 has Article Twelve and the artwork is “Young Man Greeted By a Woman Writing a Poem.” The artist is Suzuki Harunobu, Japan.  Courtesy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
