When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
… Reverend Friedrich Gustav Emil Martin Niemöller (14 January 1892 – 6 March 1984)

Konzentrationslager Natzweiler - Struthof

This camp was one of the most cruel camps. This horrible place should be remembered to show what people which were killed because of their backgrounds had to go through. For the smallest things the prisoners could be tortured. They were three doctors which would dissect jews and would decapitate them. in the middle of the camp there was a gallow which would not break your neck and would leave the prisoners getting strangled until they died. around 20,000 prisoners died and the chances of dying were very high (40%). with around 52,000 prisoners who were put in this camp, 3 escaped.
