Trivialization of the Holocaust has reached new lows. By: Jewish Press News Briefs Published: May 12th, 2014 printNazi Drinking Game
A group of Florida teenagers have devised a local version of the popular college beer pong drinking game. But in contrast to the traditional contest in which two teams gather on opposite sites of a table and try to bounce a ping pong ball into a plastic cup filled with booze, the Florida version has a charming new twist: The groups divide into teams of Jews and Nazis.
According to an image posted on the Imgur website, The Nazis start the game off with blitzkreig, with each Aryan player shooting freely into the Jewish cups until one misses. Jews are allowed to designate an Anne Frank Cup that can be removed from the table and hidden anywhere in the room. To balance out that unfair advantage, the Nazi team has the right to call Auschwitz, meaning one Jewish player is selected to sit out.
Also, throughout the game you are supposed to talk a lot of **** and say as many racist things as possible to make it more enjoyable, according to the website.
Because US college campuses clearly arent antisemitic enough as it is.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Stupid adolescent stuff, nothing more. I look forward to any examples of ===vs---- games you couldn't play. Full disclosure, I played cowboys and Indians as a child. No one gave me beer.
I thought I was all through being surprised by the banality of depravity.
Whatever college that is, I would *never* send my kids there or grandkids there.
Institutions of higher learning. /s
Further proof that Chef, from South Park, was right when he said, “There’s a time and a place for everything, and it’s called, ‘College’”
This has all the makings of a game for the Democrat convention.
Don’t forget the Gay-stapo. Ernst Röhm is alive and well.
Do they call it Juden Raus?
Juden Raus (Jews out”) is a Cross and Circle-style game published in Germany by Günther & Co. in 1936, just one year after the Nuremberg Laws were put into effect. The game was advertised as “entertaining, instructive and solidly constructed.” The game’s equipment includes a pair of dice, a game board, and several game piece figurines with large pointed hats meant to represent Jews.
Players take turns rolling the dice and moving their “Jews” across the map toward “collection points” outside the city walls for deportation to Mandate Palestine. Written on the game board, it says If you manage to see off 6 Jews, youve won a clear victory!
Juden Raus was not an official Nazi propaganda effort but an unsuccessful commercial product. The game was criticized by an SS journal that felt it trivialized anti-Semitic policies.
Informative post, as usual, CC. Wow.
Well, it was predicted long ago that this sort of thing would happen once the distance of time between WWII and “the future” was sufficient...given the generally idiotic nature of humanity, this was not exactly a bold prediction.
Thanks for the info. On my BB, now, but will view on the ‘puter before bed.
Growing up in New York in the 1950’s I knew lots of refugees from Europe, including a lot of folks who lost much of their families. I had a Jewish girlfriend. Her family, and most of her friends’ families had lost members in Europe, some in Israel in 1967 and 1973. In the Army our Roman Catholic chaplain was a local German priest who spend the war in Dachau for opposition to the Nazis. (The bravest man I ever knew.) I cannot find the words to express my outrage and disgust at this.
Yeah, stupid kid stuff, that’s my reaction, sort of. They could be doing worse. I’ll ping you to an article I’ll post in a bit about the significance of the things we (our culture, we are part of it) trivialize. Our culture can’t be excused as college kid mentality.
It does show how insidious fascism is and why conservative fears about what goes on in the schools is well founded.
After all, Hitler started out targeting the greedy capitalist bankers before really just saying the Jews.
Like the nazi commissioned movie “Titanic” where the “bankers” built the ship, dumped their stock to cause other to do the same, then pushed the ship beyond her limits with a plan to buy the cheap stocks back right before the ship arrived well ahead of time.
No one here would call you or SJackson fascist. It’s not as if you’re banned from showing it, but, because of the offensive original nature and purpose of it, you should be discreet enough to show it only with some explanation as to historical context. Just a matter of civil sensibility, NOT government censorship.
I've noted I consider the Florida incident stupid college stuff, however imo the board game, supported by the culture which created it is worth creating it. Because of what the culture which tolerated it in the 30s, did in the 40s.
Had Monopoly resulted in a peoples revolution against the capitalists, I'd refer to it in the same way.
But Monopoly, wasn't ideology sponsored by government. Shoe could win, battleship could win. Think there was a dog that could win. Long time, don't remember a government token. Nor a Minuteman token. Perhaps we should look at not the game, but what followed. Not suggesting causation, I suspect games are largely a reflection of popular culture. But not to be ignored.
Post number 9 is an explanation. I didn’t even look at the photo till later.
What an idiotic game, but there are some people who WILL go out of their way to be gratuitously shocking. It’s the devil’s tiddlywinks.
I've been called a fascist here many times, more directly a Nazi, and a communist. No big deal. Been called worse elsewhere.
I would suggest a ban on posting t things like the Juden Raus game, Germany, 1936, think of the time, is to deny the nature of the genocidal culture which spawned it.
Think about what you're saying, three years into the Reich, Dachau needs painting in a year or two, Jews are panicked to get out of Germany to everywhere, mostly to western Europe, or the east, which was a better shot, but still likely only a few more years. And Cripplecreek and I shouldn't post references to the legacy of fascist games.
Child stuff, but stupid kid stuff, worthy of criticism.
By the way what happens in the game if the Jews best the Nazis? Do they call it an Inglorious Basterds?
Too late, but would have been profitable. Maybe
The battle of good vs. evil in the world is never worthy of being ignored.
It seemed that evil was winning big time, but I dare say the good Lord had larger plans. God, I would aver, saw that Jews were getting lackadaisical about Palestine. “Why go there when we can live it up in some civilized gentile country?” Well, civilized can turn into uncivilized in virtually the blink of an eye.
I just think its important to see the nonchalance of the culture that spawned it in light of some of the dehumanizing of people in the USA today.
School children being asked to question whether the Holocaust actually happened, the story of stuff which demonizes capitalism etc. At the adult end of the scale are people with national audiences suggesting that multiple conservative women should be raped or worse.
This is the logical consequence when you don’t teach history in school.
“This is the logical consequence when you dont teach history in school.”
Well, this subject is not relevant to Common Core...
“School children being asked to question whether the Holocaust actually happened, “
In Germany, asking this would get you arrested and probably thrown in jail. It is actually illegal AFAIK to deny that the Holocaust happened there as I recall. I thought at one time that this was an outrageous affront to Western ideas of freedom. I am rethinking this position.
As kids we definitely fought the “Japs” (as they were universally known then)during our war games; the cry being “Bombs over Tokyo!” Ordinary Krauts not so much; instead, Hitler was the personification of Germany.
While I would never outlaw the question, its not a question that should be put to children. Its especially true in light of the general direction of education these days where they start with little anti capitalist cartoons and feed them a diet of hate for conservatives and wealth for 12 years.
When I was in high school we covered the Holocaust extensively with zero ambiguity because a couple of our male teachers were WWII vets and one was a Polish Jew with the scarred remains of a tattoo on his forearm.
You're absolutely right, and a little note to that effect should have accompanied your image.
To carry it a little further, some of those German kids who grew up in the Hitler Youth with "games" like that may well have gone on a few years later to participate in the later days of WWII and the Holocaust. In other words, their indoctrination into the perverse Nazi ideology assisted by childhood "games" like this encouraged them as teens and young adults to be murderers and war criminals, in many instances. So a light-hearted children's "game" can have very serious consequences.
I've read quite a lot of history especially 20th century and had never heard of the game.
It is vile - I'll say. I'll also say ‘ Thank you ‘ to Cripplecreek for the bit of historic information.
You can't compare the moral plane of American kids playing war games targeting Japs or Germans, on the one hand, and German kids playing "Get the Jews out," or whatever it translates into, on the other.
Japan's vicious sneak attack on Pearl Harbor killed about 2,500 Americans and forced the US to enter a war for its very survival. Before it was over, something like 440,000 American servicemen had been killed primarily by Japs and Germans, and many an American kid never got to see his father come home alive.
By contrast, not a single German Jew or other European Jew had killed massive numbers of Germans at the time that sicko anti-Semitic children's board game was invented. Jews were merely targeted for what was eventually mass murder by the Nazis' perverse ideology dreamed up and executed by an evil totalitarian regime.
BTW, as the child of a WWII vet, I don't think there's anything unbecoming to use the word "Jap" when discussing the history of WWII.
Very good post #36.
Looks like a drinking version of an Avalon Hill board wargame.
“When I was in high school we covered the Holocaust extensively with zero ambiguity because a couple of our male teachers were WWII vets and one was a Polish Jew with the scarred remains of a tattoo on his forearm.”
Well, these people are off the scene or are very old. What will happen when they are gone? There are idiots who don’t know or think that we landed on the moon, and that was 25 years later and on TV.
“This is the logical consequence when you dont teach history in school.”
Oh, they teach history. But not this kind of history. This does not fit the present narrative, pre-21’st Century America = Bad.
There is a fine line between being "fascinated" by these totalitarian regime produced films and being entertained or even inspired by them, especially if the viewer is immature and/or ignorant of history - which regrettably is all to often the case with the younger generations in today's United States.
And historical ignorance, in turn, is a major reason why younger voters were significantly more prone to vote for Obama in the last two presidential elections than were their parents and grandparents.
When you see man (or woman) in the street interviews on shows like "Hannity" on FoxNews, you can't believe how freakin' dumb some "millenials" are on American history and current events! Expose these nitwits to the films you mentioned and you're like playing with dynamite.
