Depends on how you define the generation of Revisionists. I think the Rudolf Report could be a good benchmark there. Since World War Two, there were always people that found that there is something fishy with the Holocaust narrative in fact, I think up to the Eichmann Trial they may have been even a majority. Not that they dismissed it out of hand, but they realized that there are people that would lie for gain. And the more educated ones would know about propaganda and that all sides in a war do employ it to some extent.
Only few would of course become Revisionist authors, like e.g. Paul Rassinier. That is to be expected because very few people have the resources, ability and persistence to perform on this. And immediately after WW2 people had a lot of other concerns like rebuilding their lives, building the country, having families etc. So even those that were skeptics towards the atrocity stories, wouldn't be able to have counter arguments in a debate. The proponents of what today is called Holocaust on the other hand would have narratives and propaganda material at hand. So the playing field was stacked in their favor.
Around the Zundel trial dissidents from the Holocaust dogma became more known and interested people could search for relevant literature and arguments. However decades had passed and the Holocaust lobby was able to disseminate their narrative via media, entertainment and the education system. So it still was difficult. With the establishment of a set of literature and arguments, newbies to the subject could inform themselves. This especially is the case via the internet of course. The Holocaust seems to lose its mythical power as well. And lets face it, a lot of dumb political decisions were based on it. So I think the end for the Holocaust is near.
