Siegfried Taub (1876, Telč, Margraviate of Moravia – 1946) was a Sudeten German Jewish politician from Czechoslovakia. Taub was the general secretary of German Social Democratic Workers Party in the Czechoslovak Republic (DSAP) from 1924.[1][2][3] He belonged to the Moravian triumvirate, with party chairman Ludwig Czech and newspaper editor Wilhelm Niessner, that came to dominate the party leadership from the mid-1920s.[4] Taub served as deputy speaker of the Czechoslovak parliament.[5]

Taub represented DSAP in the Executive of the Labour and Socialist International between February 1930 and 1938.[6]

During the beginning of the Second World War, Taub was in exile in Sweden.[3][5] In 1941, he moved to the United States. Taub left behind the archives of the Sudeten German social democrats, which were later recovered and donated to the Swedish Labor Movement Archive and Library.[7]
