Herbert Backe (May 1, 1896 - April 6, 1947) was a German politician and war criminal.
He was born in Batumi, Georgia. He performed duties in the Third Reich government and was named Minister of Food in May 1942 and Minister of Agriculture in April 1944. He continued to hold that position in the ephemeral Cabinet led by Admiral Karl Dönitz in the last days of World War II, from late April to May 1945, as according to the political will of Adolf Hitler. During the war, Alfred Rosenberg proposed Backe as administrator of the Ukraine Reichskommissariat.
Captured by the Allies after the war, he committed suicide by hanging in his cell at Nuremberg on April 6, 1947.
