Libertas Schulze-Boysen (November 20, 1913 Paris-December 22, 1942 Plötzensee Prison) was a German personality.

She was known for her involvement in the resistance against the Nazi regime during World War II. Libertas was a key member of the anti-fascist group, Rote Kapelle, which was made up of intellectuals, artists, and like-minded individuals who opposed the Nazi dictatorship. Along with her husband, Harro Schulze-Boysen, and their comrades, Libertas worked to gather and disseminate information about the atrocities committed by the Nazis and their military plans.

Libertas was a gifted linguist, fluent in several languages, which made her an important asset for the underground movement. Despite the immense risk involved, she continued to carry out her duties until she was finally caught and arrested by the Gestapo in 1942. Libertas was sentenced to death and executed by guillotine at Plötzensee Prison in Berlin, at the age of just 29. Her legacy lives on as a symbol of resistance and courage against oppression.
