The Hangman

This is a pretty powerful animation.



It is based on the poem by Maurice Ogden, which was influenced by the famous poem by Pastor Martin Niemöller.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
