“First they came for the Jews”

First they came for the Jews -and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the communists and I did not speak out – because I was not a communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me – and by then there was no one left to speak out for me.

~The German anti-Nazi activist, Pastor Martin Niemöller
