Palestine Refugees Today. Human Rights Day: Twenty-Fifth Anniversary. Newsletter Number 76.
United Nations Relief and Works Agency, New York, NY.
A special issue of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) newsletter relates the ideals of human rights as carried out for the Palestine refugees. An overview of the publication and its contents is followed by a copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Three articles--The Right to Education, An Adequate Standard of Living, and Motherhood and Childhood--review generally the events of the past 25 years in the Near East and specifically the refugee problems since 1948. A teacher's guide, accompanying the newsletter, explains the focus of human rights for use by children aged 9-12 years and offers suggestions for classroom applications. Specific projects related to human rights are described, including plays, murals, maps, and fairs. Ways in which the themes of racial discrimination and minority rights may be drawn into this unit of study are also noted. (KSM)
