9781493523993: Russia's Last Romanovs: In Their Own Words

The Last Ruling Romanovs.... Much has been written about the life of the last Imperial family of Russia: Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Tsarina Alexandra, and their five children - Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and Aleksei. The entire family, including their personal physician, retainers, and even their pets, became tragic victims of the Bolshevik revolution. They were arrested, exiled, and ultimately secretly murdered in a small cellar of a house in the Urals, in the summer of 1918. In this book, you will follow the events which led up to their eventual tragic fate through personal words of each family member, as well as their close friends and associates. Their letters, diaries, and postcards - many of which have been translated into English here for the first time - tell a unique story, and have yet a lot to reveal. Translated from Russian by Helen Azar, along with Eva and Dan McDonald, who translated most of the 1918 letters from French, this book offers an extraordinary glimpse into the very private world, and the final years, of the last Russian imperial family - which they chronicle in their own words. This book is a great companion to the "The Diary of Olga Romanov: Royal Witness to the Russian Revolution", also by Helen Azar.

About the Author:

Helen Azar is a public librarian specializing in history. She grew up in a Russian speaking household and as a child used to translate paragraphs from children's books and magazines for fun. While researching for her first book, Helen visited Russia several times, and as part of academic curriculum worked in the Rare Book Fund at the Museum at Tsarskoe Selo, which holds the imperial book collection, including that of Catherine the Great and the last Tsar Nicholas II. Helen's professional scientific training and a passion for Russian history led to co-authoring several articles on the identification of the remains of the last Tsar and his family. Currently Helen works at the Free Library of Philadelphia and is part of a team of librarians that runs popular local history programs.
