In 1993, the “Way of Human Rights” was presented to the public in Nuremberg. Each of its pillars is inscribed with a short version of one of the 30 articles of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” of 1948. The work of art created by the Israeli artist, Dani Karavan, reminds us of the darkest chapters of German and Nuremberg history, but at the same time also symbolizes the victory of humanity over barbarism and nurtures hopes of a world where all people may live in dignity, peace and freedom.
