German Communist politician who served as his country's ambassador to Czechoslovakia from 1953 to 1958. Beyond his political offices, Bernard Koenen worked at teaching and journalism. His elder brother, Wilhelm Koenen (1886-1963), was also a German Communist politician.

On 12 February 1933, during the course of the Eisleben "Bloody Sunday" Nazi propaganda march several Communist leaders were killed: Koenen was assaulted and badly injured by S.A. members, as a result of which he lost an eye.

Bernard Koenen married Frieda Bockentien (1890-1968) during the First World War. Their sons Victor and Alfred both joined the Soviet Red army in order to be part of the fight against Nazi Germany. He died on 30 April 1964 aged 75 in East Berlin.
