Kurt August Hirsch (January 12, 1906 – November 4, 1986) was a German mathematician who moved to England to escape the Nazi persecution of Jews. His research was in group theory; he also worked to reform mathematics education and became a county chess champion. The Hirsch length and Hirsch–Plotkin radical are named after him. He taught at the University of Leicester from 1938 (except for a brief internment as an enemy alien in 1940), moved to King's College, Newcastle in 1948, and then moved again to Queen Mary College in London in 1951, where he remained for the remainder of his career.
