“We are captured. We live off water & bread, we can’t afford anything else.”

“Our situation is getting worse on a monthly basis. I can’t take it anymore."

"Sometimes I ask myself whether I'd be better off dead.”

Bayern Munich’s fan scene is raising money for the commemoration of the club’s Jewish honorary president, Kurt Landauer.

And they need your help, Bayern fans from around the world.

So yeah, a thread.
The background: Kurt Landauer was Bayern Munich’s president for 20 years during several terms. Under Landauer, the club has won their first ever national championship in 1932.

He was forced to resign from the club after the Nazis came to power in 1933.
He was sent to the Dachau concentration camp in 1938, and was later released due to his service as a soldier during World War I. He then fled to Switzerland, and his life was saved. Unlike many other members of the Jewish community in Munich, that were murdered in the Holocaust.
