First They Came…

In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

First They Came
Copyright © 2010

“A social campaign based on Martin Niemöller’s famous dictum First they came… about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group.”

I don’t think that those times are coming back, but I feel a rising wave of, not just xenophobia, but discrimination against everyone perceived as different. As Twain said, history doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

The public service announcement has been directed by Florian Malak and produced at Moustache Films. Director of photography: Wojtek Zieliński.

“Campagna sociale basata sul famoso testo di Martin Niemöller, Prima vennero… che parla della inattività degli intellettuali tedeschi in seguito all’ascesa al potere dei nazisti e delle purghe dei loro obiettivi prescelti, gruppo dopo gruppo.”

Non credo che quei tempi stiano tornando, ma avverto un’ondata crescente, non già di xenophobia, ma discriminazione verso chiunque sia percepito come diverso. Come disse Twain, la storia non si ripete, ma fa rima.

Questa “pubblicità progresso” è stata diretta da Florian Malak e prodotta presso Moustache Films. Direttore della fotografia: Wojtek Zieliński.

thanks Florian!
