German-Jewish track and field athlete who set four world records and won 10 German national championships, in four different disciplines.

Henoch set world records in the discus (twice), the shot put, and the 4 × 100 metre relay events. She also won German national championships in the shot put four times, the 4 × 100 metre relay three times, the discus twice, and the long jump.

Because she was Jewish, the German Nazi government did not allow her to participate in the 1936 Summer Olympics.

The Nazi German government deported Henoch, her 66-year-old mother, and her brother to the Riga Ghetto in Nazi Germany-occupied Latvia on 5 September 1942, during World War II. She and her mother were taken from the ghetto and machine-gunned to death by an Einsatzgruppen mobile killing unit in September 1942, along with a large number of other Jews taken from the ghetto. They were all buried in a mass grave near Riga, Latvia.

Henoch was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1990. In 2008, a Stolperstein was installed in her honour in front of her former residence in Berlin.
