Ένα ποίημα διαχρονικό και πάντα επίκαιρο

Poem by Pastor Martin Niemoller against the Nazis





When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I was not a Jew.



When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
