A group of high school students have angered some members of their New Jersey community when pictures surfaced of them playing Holocaust-themed beer pong.

According to NJ.com, the variation on beer pong is called “Alcoholocaust.” On one side of the table the cups are arranged in a swastika, and on the other as a Star of David, making the competition Nazis versus Jews.

Another student saw a photo of the underage Princeton High School boys and their “Alcoholocaust” table setup on Snapchat. She was offended, took a screenshot of the image and posted it on her blog on April 6, where it was widely circulated.

Princeton schools superintendent Steve Cochrane released a statement saying, “As an individual and as the superintendent of the Princeton Public Schools, I am deeply upset that some of our students chose to engage in a drinking game with clearly anti-Semitic overtones and to broadcast their behavior over social media.”

Cochrane said the district is speaking with the students and their families about the image.
