Paul Latte was born on 2 October 1878 in Bromberg (today Bydgoszcz, Poland) in the Province of Posen. His wife Selma was born on 21 June 1878 in Moschin, also in the Province of Posen, the daughter of Nathan and Flora Noah.

Paul Latte had a bottle-dealing business at Buchholzer Strasse 23-31 in Berlin-Pankow. He made part of his factory grounds available to training workshops for young Jewish people who wanted to learn a craft before applying to emigrate to Palestine or the United States. In 1938 his business was expropriated.

The Latte family – Paul, his sister Henriette Willhelm, his wife Selma, her sisters Regina and Rosa Noah (see Noah) and their husbands, the brothers Ephraim and Adolf Broh (see Broh) was forced to live in the so-called Jew house at Albrecht Strasse 10 in Hermsdorf.

On 13 January 1943, Paul and Selma Latte were deported from here with 98 other people to Theresienstadt. Paul Latte died in the Theresienstadt ghetto on 24 January 1943; Selma Latte on 16 July 1943.
