Admiral Günther Lütjens (May 25th, 1889 - May 27th, 1941) was a German Admiral. He did not agree with Nazi policies; he had publicly protested against the brutality of anti-Semitic crimes. He was also one of the few officers who refused to give the Nazi salute when Hitler visited Bismarck before its first and final mission, deliberately using instead the traditional naval salute.

Günther Lütjens lost his life when the Bismarck was scuttled after being shelled by British warships on May 27th, 1941.
