Tibor Baranski (Hungarian: Baránszki Tibor; June 11, 1922 — January 20, 2019) was a Hungarian-American activist and educator. He was known for saving more than 3,000 Hungarian Jewish women, men and children from the Nazis during the Holocaust.
Baranski was arrested by the Soviets on December 30, 1944 and sent on a 16 day, 160 miles (260 km) forced march towards a Soviet prison. He was released after Joseph Stalin's death in 1953. He left Hungary during the 1956.
