Maximilian Grabner (2 October 1905 – 28 January 1948) was an Austrian Gestapo leader at Auschwitz, among other tasks involved in suppressing the Communist influenced resistance movement at the camp.

In 1943, he was arrested for theft, graft and corruption and was put on trial in Weimar a year later. After the trial, he returned to Katowice, Poland, where he had been stationed before Auschwitz.

Grabner was arrested by the Allies in 1945 and turned over to Communist Poland in 1947. At the Auschwitz trial, he was found guilty of charges of murder and crimes against humanity, and was sentenced to death.
