Vanda Skuratovich (Belarusian: Ванда Скуратовіч, 1925, Raubichy – 12 January 2010, Minsk) was a Belarusian Roman Catholic activist and one of the Belarusians to have been declared by the State of Israel to be Righteous Among the Nations.[citation needed]

During the Second World War she served as a partisan in Piotr Masherau's unit.[citation needed][citation needed] She reportedly rescued a Jewish family from being deported to a concentration camp.[1].

After the war, Skuratovich was a staunch activist, organizing religious ceremonies, largely forbidden by Soviet authorities at that time, at her home. She actively participated in the campaign by Belarusian Roman Catholics demanding return of the Kalvaryja Church in Minsk, which was returned to the Catholic Church in 1980.

Vanda Skuratovich died in Minsk on 12 January 2010, aged 84.
