First They Came…

First They Came Final

“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.​”

-Martin Niemöller
