Heinz Rosenberg (born 15 September 1921 in Gottingen) was a German-born author and Holocaust survivor. He survived a total of 11 concentration camps, and was one of only seven survivors of the Minsk ghetto. He later recounted his wartime experiences in the book The Years of Horror: An Authentic Report.

He grew up in a Jewish family in Gottingen, where his father owned a linen factory. In 1941 he was deported to Minsk. He was in the Minsk ghetto until 1943, although for some time he was one of the Jews who found themselves under the protection of Military Hospital 4/637, until the hospital was relocated to Crimea. He was then sent to a number of concentration camps, including Treblinka, Plaszow, Wielicza, Flossenburg, Sachsenhausen and Bergen-Belsen. In 1949 he immigrated to the United States and adopted the name Henry Robertson. His 1985 book The Years of Horror was published under his original name, however.
