Students seen playing ‘Jews vs. Nazis’ drinking game
Princeton, N.J. — Officials at a New Jersey high school said they’re upset about a photo on social media showing students playing a “Jews vs. Nazis” drinking game.
The photo was shared on Snapchat, where one Princeton High School student captured it and wrote about it on her blog.
The photo shows students playing a version of beer pong dubbed “Holocaust Pong” or “Alcoholocaust.” Students can be seen pouring beer into two sets of cups that were arranged in the forms of a Star of David and a swastika.
The 17-year-old student who blogged about the photo, Jamaica Ponder, told NJ.com the students were her classmates.
“They are athletes and student leaders,” Ponder said. “They’re prominent individuals that everybody knows, captains of sports teams.”
Princeton Superintendent Steve Cochrane said he’s deeply upset that students engaged in a drinking game with “clearly anti-Semitic” overtones.
“An incident such as this one, forces us to take a hard look at our efforts in educating our children in the values that may be most important to their success in life,” Cochrane said.
He said the district is talking to the students and their families about the photo.
