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 (1892–1984)
