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 the Socialists" written by Pastor Martin Niemöller in opposition to the oppression from the 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 a victim.

Backmatter includes a history of the original poem and Pastor Martin Niemöller.

This is a great book and must read for all elementary school age children – simple yet profound. It is rooted in history and daily life. There is an inspiring story behind the story at the back of the book and an invitation to promise to be someone who stands up. The book opens the door for conversation about other examples of differences, about teasing and bullying, about how someone has stood up for them or they wish they had, and how they can stand up for others. The illustrations are also beautiful, engaging and childlike. I strongly recommend it for all families, schools, libraries and places of worship.
