PASTOR MARTIN NIEMOLLER QUOTE "In Germany they started things out for the Communists, and I didn't talk up in light of the fact that I wasn't a Communist. At that point, they desired the Jews and I didn't talk up in light of the fact that I wasn't a Jew. At that point they wanted the exchange unionists, and I didn't talk up on the grounds that I wasn't an exchange unionist. They desired the Catholics and I didn't talk up in light of the fact that I was a Protestant. At that point they wanted me, and at that point nobody was left to talk up."
