Following is the text of a display advertisement I will begin running in a number of campus newspapers around the country beginning 05 and 06 March and continuing on through April. When printed the headline will be strong, and the whole in a box.
A QUESTION FOR THE U. S. HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM
British Bishop Richard Williamson is being condemned by the Vatican and Jewish organizations for saying he does not believe the Germans killed Jews and others in execution gas chambers during WWII. Is he wrong? Is he right? How can we know?
I have asked the Director of the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Dr. Paul Shapiro, “to provide, with proof, the name of one (one) person who was killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz.” I copied his colleagues at the Museum. Dr. Shapiro does not respond. His colleagues do not respond. I have asked more than 2,000 American academics the same question. None has responded. What reason could they have for not responding to the question?
Is there one person at the USHMM, or the Vatican, or one professor among the Holocaust scholars on this campus, who is able to answer my question? Am I wrong to ask this question? Tell me why. I can be reached at email@example.com

The ad will run tomorrow -- if all goes well, in
The Red and the Black at U Georgia
The Maneater at U Missouri-Columbia
There is always a fly in the ointment, but I think these are good to go. Any help in monitoring these papers for a story will be appreciated.
