Dietrich Bonhoeffer

 This quotation by German Lutheran pastor and Philosopher Martin Niemöller is used by people who think, "These are the word of a great man. "

First 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 for me.

Niemoller was arrested for writing Hitler telling him he was acting like a Jew.

This stupid remark got him 7 years in confinement.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor and Philosopher who opposed Nazism from the beginning.

He was a Hero who was murdered in a Death Camp but too few quote him.
