Rutgers University campus police on Saturday barred some 400 Jewish students and supporters, including Holocaust survivors, from attending a public gathering at the school, according to online reports.

The student-sponsored event was announced as an open invitation event, however the sponsoring organizations of "Never Again for Anyone," according to the reports, asked campus police to bar students wearing kippas from the event. The organizers eventually limited the attendance to supporters only.

"We wanted to protest this event because as the children and grandchildren of victims of the Holocaust we believed it to be absolutely absurd to compare Israeli act of self defense to the vicious, systematic murder of millions of Jews, Catholics, Gays, Gypsies, Russians and others," Jewish student Aaron Marcus was quoted as saying by an online report.
