Wilm Hosenfeld (1895 - 1952) was a German Army officer, who by the end of the Second World War had risen to the rank of Captain. He was stationed in Poland, where he befriended numerous Poles, became increasingly anti-National Socialist, and started using his position to help Poles and others allegedly wrongly persecuted. Despite this, he was captured by the Soviets and died in a Soviet camp.

During his time in Poland, he kept a diary, which included retellings of rumors he had heard of alleged German atrocities. It has sometimes been cited as "evidence" for the politically correct view on the Holocaust.

Criticisms include, for example, of an entry on Treblinka, which has been criticized as grotesquely ridiculous second-hand propaganda.[1]
