Police are investigating reports at the University of Wisconsin-Madison that some war protestors who set up an illegal tent encampment taunted their Jewish classmates on Monday with calls of “Heil Hitler.”

The investigation comes as video posted to X shows the pro-Palestinian protestors changing “there is only one solution,” a reference the Wisconsin Law Journal likened to Adolf Hitler’s “final solution” to exterminate 6 million Jews.

“Our officers were approached yesterday by a (student) saying that (someone shouted ‘Heil Hitler’ at them). We are actively investigating to identify that individual (protester),” UW Madison Police spokesman Marc Lovicott told the Journal. “We take allegations like this extremely seriously. Actions like that have no place on our campus. As soon as the report was made to us, we took immediate action.”

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters took over areas of UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee on Monday, despite state laws that prohibit the tent encampments.

In a letter to students, UW-Madison Dean of Students Christiana Olstad and interim campus police chief Brent Plisch highlighted Chapter 18 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code that “specifically defines and prohibits camping on university property.”

“Our priority is to first educate our community, though as at all other times, ultimately the university must and will enforce Chapter 18, as well as other applicable laws, and policies, when needed,” the letter read. “Failing to abide by these limitations can and will have consequences, both within our code of student conduct and more broadly under Wisconsin law.”

Activists with Students for Justice in Palestine vowed to continue to defy the law until university officials meet a list of specific demands, including disclosure and divestment of companies with ties to Israel, to cut all ties with educational institutions in Palestine, and a statement from the university condemning the war, WDJT reports.

Student activists told the news site they have no plans to leave any time soon, and have secured funding to bail those arrested out of jail, if necessary.

“When compared to the horrors the people in Gaza are facing right now, the threats the university are giving us don’t compare and we will be out here until we have justice for Palestinians,” Students for Justice in Palestine’s Dahlia Saba said.

At least one student, a UW-Madison junior who requested anonymity, booed the pro-Palestinian activists before police escorted him away on Tuesday.

“I don’t like it at all to be completely honest,” the student told WDJT. “Coming here to learn and then all these people coming here to ruin the fun and for what reason? This isn’t really a protest against Israel or Palestine, it is a protest about America.”

The Wisconsin protests are the latest in a wave sweeping college campuses across the country in the wake of the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel. The student demonstrations have been met with a variety of different reactions from school officials facing similar demands, with police in Virginia, New York, and Indiana moving to restore the peace. Elsewhere, school officials have attempted to negotiate with the agitators, with mixed success.

On Wednesday, police in Madison played a recorded message on a loop to give students a final warning about the illegal tent encampment on Liberty Mall before about 60 officers moved in and started removing tents and other items around 7 a.m., according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

News reports and images online show dozens students and one professor were arrested. Channel 3000 put the total at 34, with all but four released without a citation. The four were booked into Dane County Jail on charges that included resisting arrest, batter to a police officer, and attempted escape. Those taken into custody included UW faculty, the news site confirmed.

“Chants from protestors continued as some were taken away in handcuffs,” WKOW reports.

Others shrieked as police dismantled the tents.

“We hope that protestors will elect to avail themselves of the many alternative ways to protest and express their views without tents or encampments on our campus grounds,” UW-Madison Chancellor Jennifer Mnookin said in a statement.
