General Sigfrid Henrici (10 May 1889 – 8 November 1964) was a Panzer General in the German army during World War II.

He joined the Imperial German Army as an officer cadet in the 11th Artillery Regiment in 1907 and was commissioned as a Leutnant in an artillery regiment in 1909. He became a flying observer in World War I and was then the leader of a flying battalion.

He was not retained in the Reichswehr and in 1920 he joined the police, reaching the rank of Colonel of Police (Oberst Polizei) on 1 October 1935. He then moved back to the Army in December of that year and commanded the 29th Artillery Regiment from 1936. He was promoted to Generalmajor on 1 June 1939.

With the start of World War II, he was the commander of the 16th Infantry Division (motorised). He was promoted to Generalleutnant on 1 June 1941 and General der Panzertruppe on 1 January 1943. He commanded the XXXX Panzer Corps until October 1943 when he became seriously ill and was moved to the leadership reserve. In November 1943 he returned to active service and the command of the XXXX Panzer Corps. He was taken prisoner by the Red Army on 9 May 1945 and was released from Soviet captivity in 1955.
