Niels Waller recounts that Hans was living in NY with his mother and father. One day he went to a local deli for some lunch and noticed a man staring at him. The man had recently arrived in the US from Europe. Many glances, but no words were exchanged. The next day Hans returned to the deli accompanied by his mother Edith Bondi. The mystery man was again eating lunch at the deli. Although they had never met before Edith Bondi goes up to the man and says "You must be a Cassirer -- you have the Cassirer forehead." The man in question was Claude Cassirer. Claude told Niels that his father had found Claude his first job in the US.
