Quotes Attributed to the Reverend Martin Niemoller

In Germany, first they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Socialists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Catholic. Then they came for me -- and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

Rev. Martin Niemoller (1892-1984), German Lutheran pastor and opponent of Adolf Hitler
