    • According to Jules Dudock's autobiography, Simon Polansky was sixteen years old in 1904:

      "When they arrived in Bremen, Germany, they found themselves in a very agonizing position. They did not have enough money to pay for the passage after all their figuring, the price was raised after they had started out. They had no choice but to leave Simon, the oldest of the three brothers, in Bremen. He was sixteen years old, and a rabbi helped him to get him a job taking care of some horses in the area near the docks..."

      "They [Samuel, Anna, Ida, Sam and Max Polansky] were very happy to be here, even though there was no money to speak of. They were not afraid to face hardship, courage was their inheritance. Sam was fourteen years old and Max eleven full of hope and ambition, the year was 1904 and Simon was back there in Germany out of danger of the gangsters back in Colonia, Romania. They missed him and wanted him with them in New York too."
