Zvi Dror (alt. Zvika Dror) (born September 1, 1926) is an Israeli historian of Zionism and the creation of the state of Israel. His books were published in Hebrew.

Dror was a member of Kibbutz Lohamei HaGeta'ot.

Tom Segev describes Dror as the "author of one of the most important books ever written about Holocaust survivors in Israel", a four-volume work that the chronicles the lives of the survivors who founded Kibbutz Lohamei HaGeta'ot. According to Anita Shapira, who translates the title as "Testimony pages" the stories of the 96 founders recorded by Dror were "one of the first projects to coax the mute to speak" about the Holocaust. Many of the founders of Lohamei HaGeta'ot—whose stories Dror recorded—had participated in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Dror has written on the founding of Kibbutz Beit HaArava, as well as a biography of Palmach commander Yitzhak Sadeh.
