Rebecca Boehling is Professor of History at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She is presently on leave to direct the International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, Germany, a centre for documentation, information and research on the fate of victims of National Socialist persecution and the Holocaust and the experience of Displaced Persons in the aftermath of the defeat of the Nazi regime. She served on a historians’ advisory panel to the U.S. government that helped oversee the declassification of U.S. government documents related to Nazi and Imperial Japanese war crimes committed during the Second World War. In 2000 professor Boehling received a fellowship at the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, part of the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., where she began work on a comparative examination of denazification in post-Second World War Germany under western Allied occupation. Her other recent work deals with the history of the Holocaust and its post-war aftermath.
