Congratulations before the Palais Schaumburg opened a German army music Corps the Cour of congratulations to the 83 anniversary of the birth of the Federal Chancellor. Vice Chancellor Professor Erhard expressed the congratulations of the Cabinet, and despite the delimited log this time enough time for the birthday poem, the grandson of the famous grandfather remained.
Focal points of the week revolt and overthrow in Havana, capital of Cuba, and yet it is not that operettas revolutions, as they love to say after she Latin America. Here was the end of the dictator Batista and the victory of Fidel Castro, who is revered by his comrades, the rebels of the past, as a hero.
Do you still remember? Almost a year ago, we showed you this exclusive report from the hidden headquarters of the rebels. At that time, hardly anyone for Fidel Castro and his small army would have been only a red Centavo.
The history of Castro and his followers is one big adventure. Two years ago, was only 29 lawyers had landed with only 81 heavily armed followers Dr. Castro in Cuba. Since then he has not stopped, to fight the hated regime of the dictator Batista.
Now, he has reached his goal. Batista is overthrown and fled - the way again for a new democratic order cleared the youthful idealist will fulfill the hopes and expectations of his countrymen and the world? -We will see.
But even more, this vision of reality has shaped the worldview of one week. The flight of the first Soviet moon rocket into space which was accompanied by hopes, but also of concern, which registered the radio telescopes around the world, was the certainty that it is managed for the people for the first time to overcome the Earth's gravity. A great success for the Soviet science.
The rocket shot, far above its target and now circulates as a 10. Planet around the Sun - a new world image - at least for the astronomers - but we remain on our planet.
There is a bridge that must be no bridge, and there is a border in the middle of Germany. We are in the Ecker Valley in the Harz mountains.
The owner of the kiosk next to the Turnpike waits in vain for customers from over there, before a few years yet he sold to the many border crossers food and cigarettes. Now there are even here "eight posts and barbed wire – the symbol of political caprice."
A fine example of charity in everyday life we found helpers of the blind in Berlin. A traffic signal that allows a safe crossing of the roadway for the blind.
A man, whose 150th birthday we are celebrating these days - Louis Braille, the creator of Braille was looking for a way out of the eternal darkness. He who lost his sight as a child, wanted for his "blind Fellows help again to participate in the life. In the spirit of Louis Braille the members of the Hamburg-based blind Association of the 500 celebrating it here their community with socializing and dancing.
Our cameraman met spotlight of the week also in Heidelberg on optimism, although had to lie in the Ludolf Krehl clinic still patients in quarantine, but the threat of the spread of smallpox is long by taking extensive precautions.
We were, as the smallpox virus by all means of modern medicine has been circled in the hygiene Institute of the University of Heidelberg. Only the results of multi-track laboratory tests related to the clinical appearance allow the diagnosis on smallpox this diagnosis is difficult and time consuming, but she succeeded here particularly quickly in Heidelberg.
Archive footage shows the devastation this disease when she the people can freely raided a scourge of humanity. Modern medicine has many weapons in the hand: systematic disinfection at risk of contamination, destruction of waste, to kill the viruses.
But above all the vaccination, which you should undergo not only if there is an infection. For children, it is required by law in Germany.
The quick interaction between doctors and authorities in Heidelberg could prevent the acute danger of an epidemic.
The police post was deducted, the quarantine relaxed and this patient who cured - released first was lucky.
A visit to London gave us the encounter with other, quite harmless infection - pseudo astrology. Here, as of course with us and probably everywhere, there is hardly a newspaper without horoscope. Publishers who refrain from, say goodbye to the Edition. Because each of us has so many claims in the future. -"Chief would have to be." - "should I believe now him or not?" "Whether it finally with ' a car work?"-"only once six right."
Hopes and dreams, but at least as much fear and anxiety dreams move us all. Perhaps due to bitter experiences, possibly from overheated imagination, often fueled by the dangerous slogan: the stars don't lie "So it looks" except edge and band better but looks wide it out, if we, the artists popular in the London Albert Hall, the Frohsinn pay homage here these days. This must not always so daring look, yet these optimistic constellation for the worldview of this week is advisable in principle. Alpine rumblings all assets for themselves had the mannequins of a Swiss winter sports fashion show in small-Scheidegg on the Wetterhorn in over 2000 metres, showed height-how elegant and chic you can be dressed, if you watch of skiing for the ski bunnies rule however: Gehupft is yet long not jumped. The participants in the traditional new year's event in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany worried that for it.
In very unfavourable wind conditions, the jumpers had to true. Flight artists? Especially for representatives of the modern Finnish jumping style, at. the arms far be returned, there were critical moments.
Superior winner was the jumping in the Orthodox style Thuringian Helmut Recknagel - the best and safest jumper in the world.
