Hitler – The Drinking Game, involves students downing drinks on the turn of cards laid out in the shape of a Swastika.

Players are required to make Nazi salutes and “interrogate” other players.

There is also a section called The Holocaust where players have to “down in one” a pint glass filled with spirits.

The game has its own Facebook group created by Huddersfield University students Nicholas Rowley and Anthony Pike.

In the group both describe themselves as “Fuhrers”.

The group currently has 12,000 members.

Those who submit pictures of themselves playing the game are promoted to Nazi “officers”.

Students have also posted pictures of themselves with moustaches in the style of Adolf Hitler.

One member suggested Bailey’s liqueur should be mandatory, because: “The Holocaust concludes with necking a Jew’s brain.”

RAF veteran Alistair Harris from Gloucestershire, said: “It’s a disgrace. There’s no other way to describe it.”

Retired Wing Commander Mr Harris, 87, who served with the RAF from 1941 to 1976, added: “These people studying at universities are meant to be the future of our country, what hope do we have?

“Many of them will have grandparents and great-grandparents who fought and died protecting this country from the Nazis. It’s diabolical.”

Michael Barrie, former chairman of the Holocaust Survivors Associations, said: “It is horrifying any amusement of game can be associated with an event that saw around 11 million people killed.”

Professor Peter Slee, deputy vice-chancellor at Huddersfield University, said inquiries would begin into the involvement of students at the university.

“We are shocked to hear about this game and extremely disturbed at the allegations that students at this university have been taking part in it.

“We will be investigating these allegations, which we take very seriously, and will take appropriate action once these investigations are complete.”
