Here’s the translation of a famous 1976 poem by Friedrich Gustav Emil Martin Niemöller:
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 me,
there was no one left to speak out.
Depending on your own political situation, you can change the context and the poem will still strike the right cord.
