Dr. Friedrich Wilhelm Kritzinger (April 14, 1890 ‚Äď April 25 1947) was a Nazi politician. He was the deputy head of the Reich Chancellerymarker under Hans Lammers, and was present at the Wannsee Conferencemarker as Lammers representative.

Following the conference, he attempted to resign his position in the Chancellery, but his resignation was refused on the grounds that "it would be worse without him". It is speculated by historians that he may have openly and vocally opposed the Wannsee protocols, which would have explained his resignation, but no accurate historical record exists to support or confirm such speculation.

Kritzinger would be eventually arrested, along with most of the surviving members of the Conference, in 1946. During the Nuremberg Trialsmarker, he publicly declared himself ashamed of the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime. He was acquitted, and died in Nurembergmarker the following year.

Kritzinger was portrayed by Franz Rudnick in a 1987 movie Wannseekonferenz, and again by David Threlfall in the 2001 BBC/HBO film Conspiracy.
