Sergeant Jacob Domnitz was an English airman of the Royal Air Force who died during the Second World War.

He was born in 1915, in Stockton, the son of Russian-born parents Isaac, a Jewish minister, and Sophia Domnitz (née Pellman)

Domnitz, serving as a navigator/bomber in 76 Squadron, died on 12 June 1943, when his Handley Page Halifax (DK170) crashed 4 kilometres south of Biedel, in the Netherlands, after being attacked by a German night-fighter while engaged on an operation against Dusseldorf. One of the seven-man crew, Sergeant Lobban, survived and was captured three months later, having reached Bordeaux, France.[1]

He is buried in Woensel General Cemetery, Eindhoven.
