The Declaration arose directly from the results of WWII, and consists of 30 articles, the first one being: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood..” As countries choose to follow the Declaration, Eleanor Roosevelt hopes that we can prevent another world war, and give people hope for a better future.
