Poem by Martin Niemöller

First they came. . .’:

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.
