The Universal Declaration of Human Rights-adopted by the United Nations (UN) in 1948-gave human rights a new international legal status. Building on precedents set by the British Magna Carta (1215), the French Declaration of the Rights of Man (1789), and the United States Bill of Rights (1791), the Universal Declaration also reflected the events of the 1930s and 1940s, particularly the Nazi Holocaust.
