  • Description

    The East German liner "Volksfreundschaft" ("Peoples' Friendship") with 572 Trade Unionists on board for a 14-day Mediterranean cruise visited the island of Rhodes, Mar 4-5.

    On Rhodes - site of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the now-vanished Collosus - the East German holidaymakers visited the Venetian Castle and other historic monuments in the old city.

    Their ship is the former Swedish luxury liner "Stockholm" which collided with Italy's ill-fated "Andrea Doria" off the American coast in 1956. East German Trade Union purchased it later for workers' cheap holidays. Wherever she docks the ship is open to the public.
