Ludek Pachman (German: Ludek Pachman, May 11, 1924, Belá pod Bezdezem, today Czech Republic - March 6, 2003, Passau, Germany) was a Czechoslovak-German chess grandmaster, chess writer, and political activist.
In 1972, after being imprisoned and tortured almost to death by the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia, he was allowed to emigrate to West Germany. He lived the remainder of his life there, and resumed his chess career with considerable success, including playing in the Interzonal in 1976 and winning the West German Championship in 1978.
