Hermann Hackmann (October 11, 1913 – August 20, 1994) was a German war criminal, Nazi SS captain in two extermination camps during World War II. He was a roll call officer at KL Buchenwald, and lead guard in charge of the so-called protective custody at Majdanek concentration camp in German-occupied Poland. Described as a brutal man with a cynical sense of humour, Hackmann was tried three times. The first time, he was prosecuted for murder and sentenced to death by SS Judge Georg Konrad Morgen in connection with the Koch trial. Hackmann escaped punishment and was evacuated by the Gestapo.
