Alzheimer’s: The Quiet Disease

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

**Editor’s Note: This is the first of a five-part series recognizing Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. The series will highlight what Alzheimer’s is and how it effects a person. Along with a real account of a person affected by Alzheimer’s, information will also be given by a neurologist in Hastings and the staff and administration at the Sutton Community Home.**

It begins small: Forgetting keys. Not being able to put a name to a face. Then it begins to grow: Forgetting directions to a familiar area. Forgetting to get dressed. Not knowing what day it is or even the month. Then it consumes: Not recognizing your family and friends. Never being able to remember someone new. Forgetting parts about your own life.

A German Tale: Fleeing Russians for the safety of America

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

When Elfi Gartzke was just 4 years old, she learned how fast life can change. Growing up, she explained she had a wonderful life. Elfi resided on an acreage in Schneidemuhl, Germany, with her mother, father, three brothers, grandparents, aunt, and cousin.

They would swim in the river near their home and pick berries from the forest. They would play with the animals on the acreage. They did all of this until December 1944 when Elfi’s father was drafted as a German solider. It was uncommon for older men with families to be drafted, but at this time, there was no age limit. Elfi explained that boys as young as 12 were being drafted into the war.
