沉默的代價 - 德國宗教領袖馬丁.尼莫拉 (Martin Niemoller)

馬丁.尼莫拉(Martin Niemoller 1892-1984)是二次大戰前德國的宗教領袖,因反對希特勒的猶太政策和對德國教會的控制,後來被希特勒親自下令送進集中營。

二次世界大戰以後,德國牧師馬丁.尼莫拉(Martin Niemoller 1892-1984)為了讓世人記住納粹屠殺猶太人這一血腥恥辱,在波士頓樹起了一塊紀念碑,碑上銘刻這樣一段話:

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.



中譯:
起初他們(德國納粹黨)追殺共產主義者,
因為我不是共產主義者,我不說話;

接著他們追殺猶太人,
因為我不是猶太人,我不說話;

後來他們追殺工會成員,
因為我不是工會成員,我繼續不說話;

此後他們追殺天主教徒,
因為我不是天主教徒,我還是不說話;

最後,他們奔向我來,
再也沒有人站起來為我說話了。
