Monday Chess Puzzle: Can White get out of the perpetual check?

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

This is one of those chess positions where you spend hours setting it up and then Black seems to have got a perpetual in place and you have to frown, fret and fume but give away a draw...
Or, is it?
Can White get out of the perpetual here and actually win this game?

Kretchmer-Lauhe Eisenach, 1951
