  • 真夜中の虐殺(Midnight Massacre)とは、第二次世界大戦末期のアメリカ合衆国で起こった戦争捕虜の殺害事件である。1945年7月8日未明、ユタ州の捕虜収容所で看守を務めていた米陸軍のクラレンス・V・ベルトゥッチ二等兵(Clarence V. Bertucci)が、収容されていた旧ナチス・ドイツの捕虜を機関銃で銃撃し、9人を殺害、20人を負傷させた。この事件は「アメリカ史上最悪の捕虜収容所における虐殺」(the worst massacre at a POW camp in U.S. history)とも言われる。第二次世界大戦中に枢軸軍捕虜の殺害に関する起訴を受けた米軍人は3人のみであったが、ベルトゥッチもその1人であった。この事件が発生した時点でナチス・ドイツは降伏しており、欧州における第二次世界大戦は事実上終結していた。
