German Army officer who by the end of the Second World War had risen to the rank of Hauptmann (Captain). He helped to hide or rescue several Polish people, including Jews, in Nazi-occupied Poland, and helped Polish-Jewish pianist and composer Władysław Szpilman to survive, hidden, in the ruins of Warsaw during the last months of 1944 (an act which was portrayed in the 2002 film The Pianist). He was taken prisoner by the Red Army and died in Soviet captivity seven years later on 13 August 1952.
In June 2009, Hosenfeld was posthumously recognized in Yad Veshem (Israel's official memorial to the victims of The Holocaust) as one of the Righteous Among the Nations.
