I see they landed on April 6, 1940.  The 1940 U.S. census was April 1st.  If they had arrived a few days earlier than you might find them on the census. 

I'm glad that these two girls were able to make it to safety.

I see an Alex HIRSCHFELD on the 1940 census at 3055 33rd.  Wife Ethel, children Vivian and Pearl.  Is this the right family?  If so, than the girls you found arriving on April 6th are the ones you have been searching for.
