May 2 Holocaust Remembrance Day


Remember the victims of the Holocaust.
Remember what can happen in the face of indifference.

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

- Martin Niemöller
