Meditation for Holocaust Sunday

Meditation

This is a well known piece but it is well worth reminding ourselves of it.

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.
