I found:

pdr@reggie:~$ dict Plankalkül
1 definition found

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (06 Jun 01) [foldoc]:

  Plankalkül
  
     (Or "Plankalkuel" if you don't have umlauts).  The first
     programming language, by {Konrad Zuse}, ca. 1945.  Zuse wrote
     "Rechenplan allgemeiner Struktur" in 1944 which developed into
     Plankalkül.  Plankalkül included {array}s and {record}s and
     used a style of {assignment} in which the new value appears on
     the right.
  
     Zuse wrote Plankalkül for his {Z3} computer (finished before
     1945) and implemented it on there as well.  Much of his work
     may have been either lost or confiscated in the aftermath of
     World War II.
