Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust and the Consulate General of Germany present a special screening of “A Life for Football” (“Landauer – Der Präsident”), the dramatic retelling of the story of FC Bayern Munich President Kurt Landauer, on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. at the museum. The screening is in conjunction with the exhibit “Venerated – Persecuted – Forgotten: Victims of Nazism at FC Bayern Munich,” which is currently on display through Oct. 31, 2019.
“A Life for Football” is the German-language drama about Jewish FC Bayern Club President Kurt Landauer who was forced to resign his post and was imprisoned in Dachau when the Nazis came to power. He returned to Munich after the war only to find his beloved team in shambles. Landauer led the effort to rebuild the stadium and the club. Today he is remembered as one of FC Bayern Munich’s most important figures and an important contributor to the club’s success.
Curated by FC Bayern Erlebniswelt (Germany’s largest club museum), the “Venerated – Persecuted – Forgotten” exhibit highlights Landauer’s story as well as the heart-wrenching sagas of nine players and officials who were persecuted and murdered by the Nazis because of their religion or political views.
A panel discussion will follow the screening, moderated by Los Angeles Times Sports Editor Kevin Baxter. Other panelists will include acclaimed Writer/Producer Erit Yellen (Vice Sports; “An Equal Playing Field”; “Midnight Basketball”); U.S. Soccer Federation President and 1994 FIFA World Cup Chairman and CEO Alan Rothenberg; and American Masters soccer player, Maccabiah games participant and soccer coach Justin Greenberg. Consul General of Germany Stefan Schneider will also speak.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
