An eye-witness account of the Los Angeles Japanese-Americans when they were detained at Santa Anita racetrack prior to their transfer and subsequent incarceration at Manzanar, California.

"There are more than 6,000 Japanese housed in the stables which once accommodated 2,000 horses...Each stall has had a room built on in front with doors and windows and the floors have been covered with a layer of asphaltum which seems to have killed the odors."

This article, laced throughout with some not terribly subtle undertones of condemnation, was written by a Hollywood screenwriter named Alfred Cohn (1880 - 1951) who is largely remembered for having written the adaptation for the Al Jolson movie "The Jazz Singer" (1929).
