Penn State & FC Bayern Munich To Host Presentation February 15

The Penn State All-Sports Museum, German soccer club FC Bayern Munich, and the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center are partnering to present “Venerated-Persecuted-Forgotten: Victims of Nazism at FC Bayern Munich” at 5 p.m. this Wednesday, February 15, in the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center. The event covers the history of German sports under Nazi rule in the 1930s and 1940s. 

Lior B. Sternfeld, an associate professor of history and Jewish studies at Penn State, will host the event. Scheduled speakers include Dee Kundra, FC Bayern’s managing director; Alexa Gattinger, the FC Bayern Museum’s curator; and Lew Lazarow, the Penn State All-Sports Museum’s interim director. A Q&A session will take place following their presentations.

FC Bayern’s museum has come to the United States in the past and was on display on Capitol Hill last year. The event is free to attend and will be held in the Garden Room of the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center. Refreshments will also be provided.
