"First They Came for the Jews"
By Pastor Niemoller

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.



Through verse, Karen Hesse's book reveals actual events surrounding the Klu Klux Klan's presence in Vermont. This book will give students a new perspective on racism and can be used to talk with them about what it means to stand by when others are being persecuted or bullied.
