German politician who represented the socialist party (SPD) and became a mayor of Berlin; her particular interest was workers' welfare and youth matters. During the Hitler years she became a resistance activist, looking after victims of government persecution. Despite being subject to surveillance and frequent visits from the security services, she avoided arrest.

After 1945 she found herself in the Soviet occupation zone where, during 1946, she was elected mayor of the district of Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. She was removed from office in December 1947 by the military administrators. After 1948 the differences implicit in the administrative division of Berlin into four separately controlled military occupation zones began to find increasingly intrusive resonances in administrative and physical differences, especially as between the eastern part of the city, controlled by the Soviets, and the three other sectors of the city, which by this time were coming to be known collectively as West Berlin. In or before 1949 Ella Kay relocated to West Berlin where, between 1955 and 1962, she served as Senator for Youth and Sport.

Ella Kay died on 3 February 1988 in Berlin at age 92.
