The London School of Economics (LSE) is investigating claims that students took part in a Nazi-themed game on a skiing trip.

The alleged drinking game led to a fight after a Jewish student objected. The LSE’s Jewish society says the student’s nose was broken during the fight.

Some 150 students from the LSE’s athletics union went on the trip. The university’s student paper, the Beaver, claims a card game required players to “salute the Fuhrer”.

The injured student said that the game was accompanied with “antisemitic gibes” and described the experience as “extremely upsetting”.
