Góra Świętej Anny (Polish: [ˈɡura ˈɕfjɛntɛj ˈannɨ]; German: Sankt Annaberg [ˈzaŋkt ˈʔanabɛʁk]; Lower Silesian: Anaberg; Silesian: Świynto Anna; all names meaning "Saint Anne's Mountain") is a village in the Opole Voivodeship, in southern Poland.
Following World War I and the re-emergence of the sovereign Poland, while still part of the Weimar Republic, the hill was the site of the Battle of Annaberg in 1921 during the Silesian Uprisings. A museum dedicated to the uprising was opened in the village in 1961.
During World War II the Germans expelled the Franciscans from the village in 1940. A forced labour camp for Poles, Jews and Soviet prisoners of war was established, as well as a forced labour camp for Jewish women.
