Is there a picture of the maid Ersberg, who went in captivity with the IF?

And is there more information about her!

All I know,is that she left Russia. I think she was with the Dowager Empress, when she got to Europe. She returned to Russia and died during the war in Leningrad. I read it in Radzinsky's book. She was forced to burn her things on the Romanovs.

In "The Fate of the Romanovs," it says that Ersberg was taken away with Hendrikova, Schneider, Tatishchev, and Volkov. I never knew that she was one of those arrested. Was she one of the seventeen who left by train with Buxhoeveden, Gibbes, and Gilliard from Ekaterinburg?

About Elizabeth Ersberg: was she a German national, perhaps having come to Russia from Germany to care for Alexandra's children? Or was she Russian born, likely a descendant of the many Germans living in Russia for generations? Just wondering.
