The poem
The poem

  • They came first for the Communists,

    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,

    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,

    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for me

    and by that time no one was left to speak up.

    ‐ Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892‐1984)
