  • Description

    Luebke arrived in Lima on the 26th of April, was met at the airport. After he got into town, the Mayor of Lima called on him, then he returned the call.

    On Monday, 27 April, he addressed a session of the Peruvian Parliament. He made a plea for world peace, and said that West Germany wanted to cooperate with Latin America. The Parliament went into session at 5:45 pm, a number of dignitaries were present, including all high government officials and the diplomatic corps. If our haphazard translation of the dope sheet is correct, Luebke arrived at 5:45, accompanied by a cavalry regiment which escorted him to the Parliament Building. We, Mrs. Luebke and their party were met at the door and said they were delighted at the reception. Then we went inside, took his seat to the left of the President of the Congress, and later made his address
    After the speech, (this ain't be right, maybe our translation is wrong, must be before the speech) he visited the Universidad Agraria, where he said it reminded him of his former days as a farmer. He drank some of the national drink of Peru, "chicha de jora" At the same time, Mrs. Luebke visited an old persons home, and made a donation to it. She also visited St. Ursala's College and made a donation to its School for women.
