German author and journalist. She survived the Holocaust, having been imprisoned at Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Lasker-Harpprecht was arrested on 5 June 1943 along with her sister, Anita, who became a member of the Women's Orchestra in Auschwitz. The two sisters survived and were interviewed by Patrick Gordon Walker on 15 April 1945 at Bergen-Belsen, which was one of the first interviews of a Holocaust survivor.

After she gained her freedom, Lasker-Harpprecht became an interpreter for the British Army for the remainder of World War II. She later worked in London for the BBC, as well as Westdeutscher Rundfunk in Cologne and ZDF in the United States. In 1982, she moved to France where she spent the remainder of her life alongside her husband, Klaus Harpprecht until his death in September 2016. In 2016, she received the Preis für Verständigung und Toleranz, awarded by the Jewish Museum Berlin. She died in La Croix-Valmer on 3 January 2021 eleven days before her 97th birthday.

Renate and her husband were personal friends of Alois Treindl.
