The Importance of Human Rights

Last night I attended the eightieth commemoration of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass at Sydney’s Great Synagogue. The events that occurred in Nazi Germany and its surrounding European countries, on Kristallnacht was the precursor to the worst atrocity committed by humans against one another in modern times, if not all times. How it could occur in the country that produced, Beethoven, Mozart, Freud, and many other intellectual giants remains one of the greatest questions. The answer I think is based on the concept of “Humans Rights” and what this means and what can occur when those rights are denied or not recognised in others.
