Martin appears (with a date of birth in 1878) in the Breslau synagogue community address list (ca 1930) at Friedrich Wilhelmstrasse 56, an address he was sharing with a Helene Pick geb. Brandt born 05/04/1893 who is described as "Ehefr" (wife). Martin is described here as a tailor.

Quellen Zur Geschichte Der Juden In Polnischen Archiven gives his date and place of birth as 25/01/1879 in Bitschin and his last residence as Breslau.
