http://www.thegauntlet.ca/posters-quest ... -c-campus/ this article has the correct picture of the first set of posters if you scroll partway down the page, and the attached file is the one I was putting up when campus police came and talked to me. I also took the liberty of underlining the particularly incriminating statements by Yehuda Bauer, where he is quoted as saying (to Wiesenthal): "Simon, you are telling a lie".
Ah, good one. Perhaps a good start to point out that "Holocaust Survivors" may be less then honest in their accounts.
Problem is, that it's just about the figures and there you'll hear the argument:"It doesn't matter how many Jews were killed!". That's not exactly true neither, because insisting on substantially lower figures can get you into hot water. Why, if that doesn't matter?
Questioning the gas chamber part might be the most important thing to do, since that's kind of the trademark of the Holocaust.

Most students however I think prefer to let someone else do their thinking for them, which is too bad really.
Yes, to get more traction it's necessary to hook up with some recent event. More people will read it, otherwise it's "old news". The important thing is to get people debating the issue with their friends. Additionally the doubters should have GOOD arguments to leave a lasting impression.
The standards for university attendance have been drastically lowered and kids are dumbed down in school - It's a systemic problem. You'll anyway only be able to reach 3-5% of the audience that can think out of the box.
Personally I'd also posted some photos exposing the fraud. Like picks of the Auschwitz I "gas chamber doors", unconnected chimney or sloppy "Zyklon B hatches".
Recall having done something like that putting leaflets into books in a library. You know, putting A5/A6 leaflets into, books that people interested in the subject may pick at some point of time maybe the most efficient way to reach the right audience.
On the other hand, a public display may get a more hysterical reaction and get attention that way.
