    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

    Then they came for the socialists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

    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 jews,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for the catholics,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a catholic.

    Then they came for me,
    and there was no one left to speak for me.
