Wilhelm Hermann Pfannenstiel (1890 - 1982) was a physician and SS officer. Pfannenstiel after the war supported some of the allegations of the "Gerstein Report" and alleged that he had been with Kurt Gerstein at Belzec. Pfannenstiel himself initially faced the death penalty, but was instead completely acquitted, which critics see as a reward for his "confession" and support of the Gerstein Report.
In a private letter to the revisionist Paul Rassinier, he stated that "Your assumptions regarding the genesis of his [Gerstein’s] report, this most incredible piece of trash in which ‘poetry’ far outweighs truth, and also about his death, are in my opinion quite correct."
