Baron Péter Schell de Bauschlott (5 September 1898 – 2 March 1974) was a Hungarian politician, who served as Interior Minister in 1944. After the Arrow Cross Party's coup he was transported to Buchenwald by the Gestapo. In late April 1945 he was transferred to Tyrol together with about 140 other prominent inmates, where the SS left the prisoners behind. He was liberated by the Fifth U.S. Army on 5 May 1945.
After his liberation he emigrated to the United States.
