Katharina "Käthe" Kern was born into a working class family in Darmstadt as the twentieth century dawned. Darmstadt, which was also the city where she grew up and lived as a young adult, had become a prosperous industrial, commercial and cultural centre during the second half of the nineteenth century. It was here that she completed her apprenticeship for a career as a clerical-commercial worker. In 1919 Käthe Kern joined the Young Socialists. Just one year later, still not 21, she joined the SPD which, following electoral reform, had recently found itself in the novel position of being the largest party in a new German parliament and leading participant in the coalition government of a post-imperial German republic. Kern was an activist party member and trades unionist from the outset. Between 1921 and 1933 she was a member of the "Zentralverband der Angestellten" (ZdA), a trades union of private sector clerical workers. Meanwhile she supported herself between October 1921 and October 1924 by working as a secretary for the president of Landesversicherungsanstalt Hessen, the Darmstadt-based statutory pension insurance provider branch for Hessen.

She was working at the same time with the SPD Member of Parliament (Reichstagsmitglied), Siegfried Aufhäuser.

Between October 1928 and the middle of 1933 Kern was a member of the SPD regional leadership committee for Greater Berlin and head of the "Women's Secretariat" of the local party. Meanwhile, in January 1933, the National Socialists grabbed the opportunity presented by parliamentary deadlock and a resulting political crisis to take power. They rapidly converted Germany into a one-party dictatorship and set about dealing with known activist members of (after March 1933 outlawed) rival political parties. Käthe Kern was briefly taken into protective custody during June/July 1933. Following her release she worked, between December 1933 and January 1935, as a typist for the Saar Association ("Saar-Verein") in Berlin. Between January 1935 and 1945 she was employed initially as a typist and later as a secretary by the mining conglomerate "Preußische Bergwerks- und Hütten-Aktiengesellschaft" at the company's Berlin administrative centre. She was involved in anti-fascist resistance and had contacts with the group around Wilhelm Leuschner. Details of her involvement are sparse, but it appears that she was not caught.

War ended in military defeat in May 1945. With the twelve year Nazi nightmare at an end, political parties, including the Social Democratic Party ("Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands" / SPD), were no longer banned. Almost at once Kern joined the reinstated party and became a member of its national "Zentralausschuss" (approximately, "Central Committee"), based in Berlin. The western two thirds of Germany was now divided into four military occupation zones, and Berlin itself was separately divided into four separately administered sectors. Käthe Kern based herself in the eastern part of Berlin, which was administered as part of the Soviet occupation zone in Germany. In April 1946 a contentious political merger took place between what had hitherto been the Communist Party and the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SPD). The architects of the merger may have intended that it should take effect across the American, British, French and Soviet occupation zones, but in the event it gained no traction outside the Soviet zone. Within the Soviet zone Käthe Kern, who by this time had emerged as "Women's Secretary" of the SPD (at least in the east), was an enthusiastic advocate for the party merger, and as soon as it had taken effect she was one among the tens of thousands of former SPD members and the hundreds of thousands of former Communist Party members who used the pre-printed forms helpfully provided by the authorities to sign their party membership over to the new "Socialist Unity Party" ("Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands" / SED) which resulted from the merger. Still during April 1946 she was elected to membership of the "Parteivorstand", the leadership committee which after a few years had evolved into what became known as the Party Central Committee, a political body of which, by the time of her death, Käthe Kern would become one of the longest-standing members. Within the "Parteivorstand", jointly with Elli Schmidt she led the "women's secretariat" till 1949. She became a member of the newly launched [Soviet zone] Trades Union Federation ("Freier Deutsche Gewerkschaftsbund" / FDGB). She also sat, between 1946 and 1950, as an elected member of the short-lived Saxony-Anhalt state parliament ("Landtag"), although this seems to have been a relatively inactive assembly. The power structure in the Soviet occupation zone - relaunched in October 1949 as the Soviet sponsored German Democratic Republic (East Germany) - quickly became highly centralised, until in 1952 state-level government structures, including regional state parliaments, were simply eliminated.
