Gottlob Berger during the Nuremberg trials.

Gottlob Christian Berger (16 July 1896 – 5 January 1975) was a German SS officer who was the leader of the SS Main Office between 1939 and 1945. He also had other positions.

The SS Main Office had lost much of its earlier power around 1940, but Berger was still accused of various alleged crimes after the war, such as regarding recruitment for the Waffen-SS.

At the Nuremberg trials, his trial involved the use of the recently "discovered" first Posen speech as evidence against him. He was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, but was released after 6 and a half year.
