Holocaust Memorial Day

FIRST THEY CAME – BY PASTOR MARTIN NIEMÖLLER

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then 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 out for me.

We must also remember the holocaust of gay people, for they came to intern and exterminate people who did not conform to the heterosexual norms of the day. The pink triangle is testimony to this.
