Henri Weber (23 June 1944 – 26 April 2020) was a French politician and Member of the European Parliament for the north-west of France. He was a member of the Socialist Party (PS), which is part of the Party of European Socialists, and sat on the European Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education.
Weber was born in Leninabad (now Khujand), Tajikistan, Soviet Union, in a Soviet labor camp, on a hospital ship moored on the banks of the Syr-Daria river, to Polish Jewish parents who had fled from the town of Chrzanow, Galicia, during the Nazi 1939 invasion of Poland, and who later immigrated to France from Poland. His father was a watchmaker.
Henri Weber was an activist in the May 1968 uprising and was a leading member of the Trotskyist Jeunesse communiste révolutionnaire (Revolutionary Communist Youth) and Revolutionary Communist League (LCR) before joining the PS.
He was also a substitute for the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, a member of the delegation to the EU–Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee, and a substitute for the delegation for relations with Japan.
Weber died, aged 75, after contracting COVID-19 during the COVID-19 pandemic in France.
