They Came for Me

“They came for the communists, and I did not speak up because I wasn’t a communist;

They came for the socialists, and I did not speak up because I was not a socialist;

They came for the union leaders, and I did not speak up because I wasn’t a union leader;

They came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak up for me.”

Martin Niemoller, 1892-1984
