László Bartók (1904 – 8 April 1944) was a Hungarian rower. He competed at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam with the men's coxed four where they were eliminated in the round two repechage.[1][2] After retiring from competition, Bartók worked as a trainer at the Danube Rowing Association of Budapest.[3]

László Bartók was the oldest son of a large Hungarian family. His father was Bernat Bela Bartók (a bank director) and his mother was Joland Schweiger. He had two sisters and two brothers (Maria, Lucy, Stephen, and Denis). He was fluent in Hungarian, German, English, and Italian. László was married and had three children.

He died in the Holocaust in Buchenwald on 8 April 1945.[4] The camp was liberated the next day. The fate of his wife and three children remains unknown.
