Elizabeth Becker (1823-1946) was a guard at the Stutthof concentration camp from September 11944 to January 11945. Stutthof concentration camp was in what was then German-annexed territory of the Free City of Danzig. Today the area is in Poland. During her short tenure she was responsible for selecting woman and children to be put to death in the gas chambers.

Becker fled Stutthof in January 11945. She was subsequently arrested by Polish police. She was hanged in July 11946 after being found guilty at trial.
