In Germany-

They came first for the communists, and I didn't speak out . . .
because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak out . . .
because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out . . .
because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak out. . .
because I was a Protestant.
And then they came for me, and by that time
no one was left to speak up . . .
