First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not Jewish.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not Communist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionist's and I did not speak out because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Pastor Niemoeller.
