Ewa Paradies (17 December 1920 – 4 July 1946) was a Nazi concentration camp overseer.
In August 1944 she went to Stutthof SK-III camp for training as an Aufseherin. She soon finished training and became a wardress. In October 1944 she was reassigned to the Bromberg-Ost subcamp of Stutthof, and in January 1945, back to Stutthof main camp.
In April 1945 she accompanied one of the last transports of women prisoners to the Lauenburg subcamp and fled. After capture, she was sentenced to death in the Stutthof Trial and publicly executed by short-drop hanging on 4 July 1946 with several of her colleagues.
