Walter Kutschmann (July 24, 1914 - August 30, 1986) was a SS Hauptscharführer, a member of an Einsatzkommando during World War II, based first in Lwów, Poland (today Lviv, Ukraine), and later in Drohobycz.

In 1941, he participated in a massacre of Lviv professors.[1]

After the war, Kutschmann lived under a fake identity in Argentina until January 1975, when he was found and exposed by journalist Alfredo Serra in the resort town of Miramar. He was arrested ten years later in Florida, Buenos Aires province, by Interpol agents, and died of myocardial infarction in jail before he could be extradited, on August 30, 1986.[2]
