FICTION

Die Auslöschung

Obliteration

Nikolaus Leytner
Great romance comes much too late in life and unexpectedly for Ernst and Judith. When they finally start listening to their feelings, the two quite different lives are happily united. Minor changes in Ernst’s behavior seem unimportant at first: The brilliant intellectual plays down gaps in his memory with a sense of humor. Then he’s diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Judith’s confronted with the gradual loss of everything she loves about Ernst. He’s aware of getting closer to the point of forgetting who he and Judith are and makes a decision.
