Camp Location

Galoehan was a sugar plantation, about 12 kilometers south of Kediri. The camp was located in the managerís residence and outbuildings, adjacent to the narrow-gauge railway network (for the sugar-cane transport).

The main dwelling was called "Sans Souci". The camp was surrounded by a brick wall topped with barbed wire.
