This #ThrowbackThursday, we’re featuring UN Video’s visual collage of some of the most memorable moments in UN history through its Stories from the UN Archive series.

Giving viewers a front-row seat, the series captures what it was like to see and hear the iconic moments that shaped our common destiny.

Drawn from a wealth of almost 50,000 hours of historical footage and audio preserved by the UN Audiovisual Library, this series highlights moments throughout the first century of UN operations, from the infamous to the nearly-forgotten, from world leaders to global superstars.
