Publisher’s Description: 

First they went after Jalal.
But I'm not black -
So I didn't stand up for him.

Then they went after Mariana.
I was born in this country -
So I didn't stand up for her.

A picture book inspired by the iconic poem "First they came for Socialists" written by Martin Miemoller in opposition to the oppressive Nazi regime, I Didn't Stand Up looks at common circumstances of oppression that children encounter through the eyes of the bystander - until he or she becomes the victim.

Includes a history of Niemoller's poem and associated backmatter.
