Leopold Schwarzschild (8 December 1891, Frankfurt am Main, Germany – 2 October 1950, Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy) was a German author.

His 1943 book World in Trance[1] was praised by Winston Churchill but criticised by H. G. Wells, who called Schwarzschild "superficially intelligent and massively stupid", and Michael Foot, who denounced it as "a facile, scintillating treatise which...has received applause from those weary brains which prefer the dismal past to the adventurous future".[2]
