|Welcome to the "Get A Professor To Profess" Program. If you'd like to do something that might help break the holocaust myth and ultimately lead to helping peace in the mideast, print out these flyers, and send them to 100 professors. Detailed instructions are below the images. Hope you can take this on! The images below are linked to printable high MB pdf files. After you click on them give your computer 1-3 minutes while the pdf document loads.|
It will take you about a week of full-time work to send the Treblinka flyer to 100 professors. (Hannah Arendt might call this the "banality of spreading the truth.") My printer cost me around 100 dollars brand new. (Canon MP480, bought at the Apple store.) It's easy to figure out how to reload the paper so you get the front and back side on one piece of paper. I think the Treblinka flyer is more important than the Buchenwald flyer. Just send out the Treblinka flyer, unless you can handle the work of sending both flyers, which would then be two pieces of paper in one envelope. One particularly powerful aspect about these flyers is that they are related to internet videos which have way more information, should the recipient be interested. Also, the flyers list a website containing footnotes that back up the assertions made in the flyers. Please read the instructions below in their entirety before proceeding:
Find professors on the web, and then send them the flyer in the physical mail. I believe that's a lot better than email. With physical mail you can't get blocked; it can be more anonymous; it won't get marked as spam; and has a higher chance of being read.
Don't confuse the professor's office hours address, with the mailing address. The professor's mailing address is the department address with the professor's name on top. Don't send to the office hours address. That's because their mailbox is in the main office of the department. Their mailbox isn't at their office where they hold office hours.
Keep a text file of all your addresses, and mark which ones are "sent" as you go. You'll be finding departments via the internal search engine of the university web site main page. Once at the department site, you'll often click on the "people" link to find faculty, and the "contact" link to find a department address. Here's an example of a professor's address:
Professor John Doe
Use the web to find professors who deal with modern Europe in some way. They are in History departments, European Studies departments, Genocide Studies departments, German departments, and Peace Studies departments. This can help sometimes: use the text "site:.edu" at the end of a google search if you're going for United States professors. The flyer is based on speculation that there are well-meaning professors who really don't know the truth about Treblinka, and that this flyer opens their eyes, and they then have the bravery to go public with their viewpoint that the holocaust (or at least Treblinka) is a myth; and that they have the insight to see why that's important to go public.
One tactic might be to hit a cluster: 6-7 professors in one department at the same time. Or maybe even 20 people with a combo of professors and grad students in order to create a "buzz." Feel free to diverge from these guidelines and be creative, but also use your thinking ability: passing them out on the street is very unlikely to connect with anyone who matters on the subject and could lead to problems for yourself. Sending them to your neighbors is unlikely to connect with anyone whose change of viewpoint would matter either and could also cause you problems. Of course everyone's viewpoint matters, but the most valuable person to convince is a history professor. You may find that a large percentage of the people you find are Jewish. I've found it to be around 70 percent, though Jews are 2 percent of the population. Go figure. Are Jews as likely to "break ranks" with the myth? Who's to say. I'd send them a flyer and hope.
What you want to put as a "return address" on the envelope is up to you. Don't impersonate a real person or group. United States post offices don't require a return address, but perhaps it looks better to have one. I'm not sure. Write addresses by hand. It looks more personal. It's your responsibility to be aware of the laws in your respective country regarding holocaust denial in regards to sending this flyer, and your choice whether to break those rules or abide by them. I like security tinted envelopes, with the adhesive strip, so you don't have to lick them.
It's probably best to not add extra information. Just the flyer(s)
You can print right from the PDF in your web browser, but it may be better to do a "Save As" to your computer and open the saved pdf file in Adobe Reader, and print.
You'll end up spending relatively little money for this entire project, and if you find that one professor who is receptive, you may end up changing the world. Good luck!
P.S. You may be interested in looking at the footnotes:
Also, keep in mind that you're going to be sending the flyer to a bunch of nice people, well meaning people who aren't aware that history departments like theirs, across the country are what's holding up, propping up, billions in military aid going to Israel and a US Foreign policy that leads to persecution of indigenous people in the mideast. It's easy to believe in the myth. I know because I believed in it for years! Here's some photos of history faculty. These are the type of people who are going to be receiving the flyer:
