LP063 First They Came for the Jews Pastor Niemoeller quote (c) Leeds Postcards 1980

Pastor Niemoeller spoke from his pulpit against the rise of Adolf Hitler's National Socialist Party in the early 1930's after churches like his had been instructed to dispense Nazi propaganda.

Niemoller soon noticed that fellow clerics who did not follow the Party line had started to 'disappear'. Despite this he risked his life and publicly spoke out and this is a translation of his text. He was arrested but managed to escape with the help of friends to the USA where he lived till 1984..
