From April 1942 until April 1945 the Pulo Brayan compound was used as a camp for Dutch civilian internees. The camp complex was enlarged in phases. There were five departments in the camp: A, B, C, D and E. The first three blocks were small houses for lower DSM personnel. Blok A consisted of two coolie sheds. Blok D consisted of eighteen larger houses for Europeans. Some of the houses from Blok E were moved in 1944 to camp Glugur II, away from flooding. In June 1945 Poeloe Berayan A, B and C were moved to Aek Pamienke II. Blok D moved to Aek Pamienke I in April 1945. (Dulm: 2000: 39, 40).
