Title: New Monument to Olga Nikolaevna
Post by: Dru on November 07, 2018, 08:27:36 PM
"On 24th October, a monument to Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna (1895-1918), the eldest daughter of Emperor Nicholas II was established in the Russian city of Novy Oskol, situated 90 kilometers northeast of Belgorod.
Founded in 1905, the school was then named Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna Women’s High School. Today, the oldest educational institution in the city, is simply referred to as Olginskaya High School. Funds for the construction of the educational institution were donated by the grand duchess herself."

This post has got to be one of the most riveting I've read in a long time.  The beautiful monument, and the moving story behind it, lift Grand Duchess Olga out of the pages of history books and breathe fresh life into her memory.  Thank you for posting, Dru.

Very nice news, especially when reading it just two days before its anniversary date.
