Its something like this, I saw them come for the Jews and I said nothing, its goes on naming all the others and then at the end it says and when they came for me no one said anything for there was no one left to stand up for me. Now I remember reading this and thinking what a great piece of work it was but now can't remember much of it at all. I know it is a famous piece of literature, anyone know the words and title and who wrote it. TIA

First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I said nothing.
Then they came for the Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat, so I did nothing. Then came the trade unionists, but I was not a trade unionist.
And then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did little.
Then when they came for me, there was no one left to stand up for me.'

I guess there are variations.
