Stanisław Dobosiewicz (1910–2007) was a Polish writer and school teacher. He is best known as the author of a monumental monograph of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp. Born in Maków Mazowiecki, Dobosiewicz became a lyceum teacher in the interbellum. Arrested in April 1940, in the course of the AB Action, he was sent to Dachau concentration camp and then to Mauthausen, where he spent the entire war.

After the war, he resumed his teaching career and became one of the prominent members of the Polish section of the Mauthausen Club of former inmates of that camp. He also started gathering materials for his future book on the camp. Eventually, he published four books on the history of the camp, each devoted to a different aspect of life there.

He died in May 2007 at the age of 96, leaving behind his wife and 2 sons.
