First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then 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 out for me
this was written by a German Pastor whom at first thought Hilter was a God send but when he went after all who was different then Pastor Martin Niemuller startled fighting against him Pastor Martin Niemuller wrote this it is just as powerful today as it was during world war 2
