Bruno Beger (27 April 1911 – 12 October 2009) was a German racial anthropologist, ethnologist, and explorer who worked for the Ahnenerbe. He assisted in the Holocaust by helping the Race and Settlement Office to identify Jews and also helped select human subjects to be killed for August Hirt's anatomical study collection of human skeletons.

After the war he was exonerated by a denazification trial only to later be taken into custody for his role in the skeleton collection. Beger was sentenced to three years in prison, but appealed and had it reduced to three years probation. He died in 2009.
