This is my version of Marten Niemoller‘s poem.

When they hurt the geeks,
I did not speak out-
Because I was not a geek

Then they humiliated the gamers,
And I did not speak out-
Because I was not a gamer

Then they teased the emos,
And I did not speak out-
Because I was not an emo

Then they came for me-
And they there was no one to speak for me.

That is my remix. Here is some facts about Marten Niemoller.
-He worked at a church
-He didn’t like Hitler
-He went to a concentration in world war 2


The Holocaust

       When Hitler rose into power of Germany,he made people belive that he had all the answers, so people didn’t think he would hurt anyone, but than he wanted to take over places and he killed Jews because he said it was the final solution. First Jews were made fun of, then they weren’t allowed to be greeted by people who aren’t Jewish.People weren’t allowed to talk Jews. Then the Kristallnacht happened when Hitler basically sent a warning to the Jews and people who were nice to Jews they burnt there homes or thing they owned, basically hitler sent out a warning that if you were a Jew and you stayed than bad things will happen and if you were nice to Jews then you weren’t respected. After that Hitler stuffed Jews and other people with different relgions or skin colour into trains and they were sent to concentration camps, where they would be killed,tested on, or forced into hard labour.In the concentration camp if you were picked to die then they would ether shot you,gas you and then burn you, they took all your clothing and there would be dentists opening people’s mouthes and talking all your gold teeth because they ae worth money. If you were kept alive then you got test on or you had to work and get a watery bowl a soup a day so you stay alive. People in the holocaust were basically skin and bones. Some people helped the Jews by hiding them in their own house like in the attic,walls or basements. The people who were helping the Jews bought the food and made sure  they weren’t caught when the solders searched a house. Some Jews moved from house to house trying to get out of Germany. Some Jews pretended to be catholic so they wouldn’t go to the concentration camp, when they did that some people who knew they were Jewish and turned them in for money. When Hitler took over Poland he transferred most of the Jews to his concentration camps.

     Then in 1945 Germany and there allies were defeated. Then in all the concentration camps everybody was released, and Hitler had about 10 000 body guards, then Hitler committed suicide in a bunker. Although the war had ended one of Germany’s allies which was Japan did not surrender so the U.S.A dropped atomic bombs in two cities in Japan after that Japan surrendered.
