Information: Especially during the attack on Soerabaja (10 to 30 November, 1945) large numbers of wounded flooded into the hospital, probably the new Central Civilian Medical Center. Medical care there was seen to by the doctors Hadiwonoto and Soekirman. Food was scarce and had to be transported from Sidoardjo. Because the ability to care for patients was hampered by heavy fighting and grenade attacks, it was decided to evacuate. From November 13th all of the sick were evacuated by the republicans by train, some to Djombang and some to Malang.
