“First they came for the communists” by Pastor Martin Niemoller


First they came for the Communists

And I did not speak out

Because I was not a Communist


Then 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 out for me
