The ADL says that in November 1978, several players at Babson, a private business school based in the Boston suburb of Wellesley, hung a sign in the gym that read "Happy Holocaust" during the game with Brandeis, a school in nearby Waltham with a large Jewish population.
The ADL says Babson players also wore swastikas during the final practice before the game and yelled "Holocaust!" and other anti-Semitic slurs to boost morale.
A statement by the ADL says the "insulting and ignorant actions left a bitter taste in the mouths of everyone at Brandeis."
