  • What do you like about the poem?
  • Is there anything you dislike about it? If so, why?
  • Why do you think the poem has become famous?

 

And then they came for me

 

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

by Martin Niemöller

 

 

Martin Niemöller wrote this poem after the Second World War. He believed that he had not done enough to oppose the Nazi Party who had arrested and killed group after group of people.

 

Activity 2: Non fiction guide to 'Black Lives Matter'

Your next activity is to read a non fiction guide focused on Black Lives Matter. Like normal, I would like you to highlight the key parts of the text.

Following on from all the important information you have read in this guide, I would like you to design a poster which shows the 5 most important things you learnt from the guide. I would like you to consider who you want your AUDIENCE to be, what FORMALITY you are aiming for and what the PURPOSE is for your poster.
