Kaethe moved with her parents to Berlin and then to Wiesbaden where her father managed a Salamander shoe shop. Her father sent her to Breslau to learn his trade in the shoe retail business.
Kaethe married Fritz Danziger in Breslau in 1919. Their Stammbuch gives her address as Breslau, Augustastrasse 84, which was the home of Fritz's aunt Fanny Schlesinger geb. Danziger and her family. By 1924, when their son Walter was born, Kaethe and Fritz were living in Berlin, and they remained there, apart from an excursion to Copenhagen for the birth of their daughter in 1933, until they were forced to flee in about 1937. Kaethe escaped with her daughter to England and, after a period employed as a cook at Whittingehame College, a Jewish boarding school in Brighton, eventually settled in Bradford, Yorkshire at 9, Thorncliffe Square. Fritz and Walter emigrated to Sweden. Kaethe and her daughter changed their surname to Danning.
