Not one of you will speak out, will you?





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.



~ Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
