A Jewish student at Rutgers University who had criticized the anti-Semitic environment on campus found his name and photo printed  with a student-run satirical newspaper's article called "What About the Good Things Hitler Did?"

The university, located in New Brunswick, N.J., is investigating the incident, Fox News reported.

"To say anything praiseworthy of someone like Hitler, and to have people actually believe it was coming from me even in a satirical manner is just really painful for me and my family," Aaron Marcus told MyFoxNY. 

The article, in the student-funded Daily Medium newspaper, included lines like "Give Hitler a little thanks."

"I'm a firm believer in freedom of speech, but I'm not a firm believer in impersonation and liable," Marcus told MyFoxNY.

Marcus says his relatives were survivors of the Holocaust and he has previously spoken out about what he has called an anti-Semitic environment on campus.

Rutgers' President, Richard McCormick issued a statement saying, "No individual student should be subject to such a vicious, provocative and hurtful piece, regardless of whether First Amendment protections apply to such expression."
