Hinrich Lohse (1896 – 1964) was a German National Socialist Reichskommissar for Ostland during World War II.

Lohse is alleged to have written two documents which are sometimes cited as evidence for the politically correct view on the Holocaust and the Einsatzgruppen. Holocaust revisionists have criticized these documents, for reasons such as being unsigned or signed only with an "L", being claimed carbon copies and/or having been "processed" by the YIVO organization, being of doubtful authenticity, and Lohse never having to face an Allied court after the war, despite his position. He was sentenced in 1948 by a Germans court, but released in 1951, due to alleged ill health, but lived for more than a decade afterwards.[1]

The revisionist Arthur Butz states that "As for the comments attributed to him, Reitlinger remarks that they “saved him from the Allied Military Courts and perhaps the gallows” for, while they speak of atrocities, they are so worded as to put the author of the documents in opposition to the crimes. [...] Obviously, Lohse could not have any conceivable reason to contest the authenticity of these documents because, though they suggest exterminations, they emphatically excuse him."[1]
