First They Came for the Jews

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out...

Because I was not a Socialist.


Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out...

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.


Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out...

Because I was not a Jew.


Then they came for me...
And there was no one left to speak for me.

 

Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
