The Final Chapter / Re: A Question from a Friend
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:04:34 AM »
Believe whatever makes you happy. We do know that Yurovsky's men were looting the bodies finding valuables which Yurovsky made them all turn over before the bodies went out to the trucks. This account is reliable because several sources mention it as well as Yurovsky.  So the bodies were all being handled and clearly if someone was still alive they would have noticed. Every person who has studied these events in full detail has pretty much come to the conclusion that none of the Imperial Family and their retainers left that room alive

 Because Yurovsky said they stabbed and beat her with the guns to kill her. Go read his statements.

The discussion is buried in the Anastasia "surviving" discussions. Yes, the diamonds acted like a "bullet proof" vest when they tried to stab them, and some stones started to fall out when they started moving the bodies.

This has be rehashed over and over and over. Don't forget they discovered the girls had diamond quilted into their undershirts when they tried to stab them to kill them. They stripped their bodies for jewels and so were handling the bodies and would have easily discovered anyone was still alive. NO they all died. Nobody survived even for a short while.

The Alexander Palace / Re: The Mauve Room (Photos)

The manufacturer was "Charles Berger" in Paris.  I found my notes. The cost last time it was requested was $1000 per meter, and that was some fifteen years ago now!

The firm name is here somewhere in the thread, you can search for it as I can't recall it off hand. They are still in business. They don't make it currently, it would be a special commission they can reproduce. 20 years ago it was about $600 a meter! We don't know if the original firm is making the fabric for the current restoration or if the Museum has another source.

Nicholas II / Re: Disposal of bodies and Yurovsky-Ermakov conflict

Use the search function for the forum and/or scroll through the posts in "The Final Chapter" where all this was discussed at length after the second set of remains were found.

Yurovsky wrote a lot of things that were contradictory or plain out lies. You must read his words with caution and scepticism. He was writing for his Soviet audience, not an accurate historical account.

This was explained many years ago. Yurovsky decided to burn the bodies so the remains couldn't be identified.  Before burning them all, he decided to take the two smallest bodies to see if they would burn sufficiently.  They didn't burn at all having been frozen. So Yurovsky buried the two at that site, running over the area with trucks to obliterate the traces and then took the remaining bodies to be buried elsewhere.

If you don't know, you shouldn't post the photo if it is more recent than 1923, to be certain.

I wish to remind users that due to International Copyright laws you can NOT post photos which are in copyright without permission of the copyright holder for images after 1923. Please do not post photos if you do not know the date or have copyright permission.

Thanks

The Habsburgs / Re: Empress Maria Theresa and her large family

Because you can't upload photos directly here. You have to put it up on a different server, such as shutterfly or snapfish and then embed the code from there between the [img] tags, not [image]

You are correct, Xenia's grandchildren kept all of those letters, from Olga and Marie Feodorovna as well.

Yes to King Edward. I don't know the chap on the left either.

The watermark on the photo is clear that it came from GARF, the National Archives of the Russian Federation.
