holocaust memorial, boston


And engraving of the poem by Martin Niemoeller, at the Holocaust Memorial in Boston. 

Will there one day be a memorial that says; 

"First they came for people of colour, 
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a person of colour, 
then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
then they came for the feminists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a feminist.
then they came for the gay and transgender people,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't gay or transgender.
then they came for me, 
and by that time no one was left to speak up."
