Touring exhibition at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust
The deputy vice-president Walter Mennekes hit the nail on the head. The fact FC Bayern selected the opening of the touring exhibition 'Venerated – Persecuted – Forgotten' on Tuesday morning as the first big event of the tour shows how important the subject is for the whole club. The exhibition, which tells the stories of the victims of Nazism at FC Bayern, at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust runs to 30 September.
The commitment of the German record champions to opposing racism found recognition by the American Jewish Committee (AJC): "The fact FC Bayern use their enormous recognition around the globe to fight anti-Semitism is exceptional and should serve as inspiration for other sports teams to use their platforms for social justice," said Scott Edelman, Regional President of the AJC in his speech at the opening event.
SAP: Tricks and views with Coman and Kimmich
Joshua Kimmich and Kingsley Coman were at an event with FC Bayern partner SAP in the evening. On a roof terrace with an impressive view, the duo took part in a skill challenge with a freestyle artist before fulfilling the requests of the guests for photos and autographs.
Fan meeting at Paulaner with Martínez and Sanches
A great atmosphere awaited Javi Martinez and Renato Sanches at the fan meeting with the Bayern partner Paulaner.

Martínez and Sanchez enjoyed mingling with the crowd and were kept busy signing autographs.
