There were many stories I am sure due the history of the revolution, and the brutality of it all. Children did not fare well either, and even during that time for the killers there was no one to be spared. These beasts were building a new order of life. Most emigre's and children who escaped with their lives, kept a rather low profile, and kept for the most part any understanding that they either had survived, or that they still were alive. Once a target and or actually escaping the maddness, no one at any age was willing to  make any notice. This behavior  was pretty consistent from 1918 by most people and children who escaped from Russia. Nothing really unusual by those who eventually escaped and lived abroad. They got any job they could, but for the most part were deathly afraid of expressing anything to do with their past life in Russia. My father and the friends he escaped from Russia, from the revolution from,  rarely if ever spoke of those days. The pain of it all never left them, for so many had left loved ones behind, never even if their loved ones did survive, to hear from them again.

Another note of understanding. Although the Red Cross existed during those days, not many social  networks if any, and very little precious were available to offer much to emigrees. Those who arrived really had nothing to fall back on. They had to learn a new language, and fend for themselves pretty much. There were no places for emigrees to go to, or to really be offered safety from their nightmares, etc. For the most part, these emigrees stayed to themselves, and to their russian communities they chose to build on and live in. For the most part they held on to their old world customs, building new Christian orthodox churches, as well as new Jewish synogogues. They had escaped but they were not prepared to give up their traditional ways of living. For many children to elderly, faith is the main thing they clung to, just to survive to continue to live. Some prospered, some barely, nevertheless, most were thankful just to be alive.

The Russian Revolution / Re: No Stalin, no Hitler?
« on: October 27, 2007, 11:24:48 AM »
I am wondering just a bit after reading all these posts, and especially after reading James 1941. There has been a lot of emigration from Germany and Russia, going to all parts of the globe. I see the news in some parts of the world of facism rising, and Communism not entirely out of the picture in Russia. Jim mentions 'new thinking' in his post, on this thread. Would you say that facism is becoming stronger, or that communism has not exactly exited the global picture ? Thanks in advance for any views offered.

The Final Chapter / Re: Annual event in Ekaterinburg?
« on: September 27, 2007, 10:52:31 AM »
As a child and in my teens, I had heard stories from my father and other early exiles of the faithful making pilgrimages for various church affiliated special religious days. The scene you describe are as it was almost in those days, minus the difficulties in transportation they had then. It seems from what you have described that Russia and the Russian people of the Orthodox faith are very set in their minds to keep alive the memory of the Imperial Family members, etc. I have heard from others who have visited this site, and they say that it was also very moving for them as well. The Russian Orthodox Church I believe is fully involved in commeration services in and at various historical sites in Russia.

Thanks again for your report. If anyone should go to these commeration processions, etc., is it possible to take pictures and send the to our site.

The Final Chapter / Re: Poll: Deragatory To Call Communists "Commies"?

Thank you Dimitri. It is deragatory to say the least. You can imagine how I felt at nine years of age and younge being called that name.

Lisa, perhaps there is some negativity in the West when it comes to the ROC not accepting the identifications of the remains from 1981. Still, the church is working to reform its views, and meet with all involved in church matters, etc., so that its public persona will be understood expressly. I think it is the sameness of what is transpiring throughout Russia, in government reforms, etc. God willing, it will evolve more and more with less negativity. As Tsaria expressed of late, faith is something that comes from within. I think many of us never thought we would see a Russia as today, but with hard work, it has evolved much since 1917. May Russia continue to open up, and grow, as well with faith.

While individually we may not be in agreement on certain issues, etc., it is uncalled for anywhere, to actually call for 'killing' of any human being, known or unknown. Name calling is also uncalled for. Whatever you do, please do not continue to share such views as you have to date. I am in agreement with Lisa, and Robert Hall. If you are angered, keep your thoughts to yourself, please, or consult a greif counselor.

Dear Tsria,

Very well said. I think it how many wish the chapter of these prescious lives to close off with. Thanks always for your wise and heart felt statements. It's a pleasure to read your learned statements. You go so often to Russia, I know you know Russia and Russians very well. Always glad to hear your direct understandings of a given issue ! God Bless !

Lucien,
Unfortunately I have not heard of Mrs. Jane Tomlinson. What a loss to the world she is, and to have died so young.
She was certainly active and warm with actions and thoughts always to benefit others.
God Rest her soul. She remains as she was in life, an inspirational heroine for all ages, the world over.
Thank you again for sharing her story here on the AP Forum.

Your postings make my mind work overtime, especially on the questions you birng forth. Please keep posting. What you have offered to date is very informative and far from boring. Discovering truth is always more important than having lies prevail. Thank you again Jeff for all you offer. Your a gem !

Your excellent presentation of facts already allows us as readers to agree with your statement as posted on Rudolf Lacher :

"First of all, he was a real person; if he has any relatives, they carry with them the burden of the accusation of murder, a burden I hope to dispel, or at least cast all that should be necessary to exonorate him:  REASONABLE DOUBT", that you will be very successful in possibly exonerating him. You are very thorough and complete.

Thank you most kindly for all you have offered to post as well enlighten us as readers. I look forward in days ahead to what new information you will bring to light.

Hello Lucien,

They also reported that the main person, and mastermind of this findish crime is living abroad...they haven't quite caught up with the person, but are hot in pursuit!

Nice to hear from you Lucien; hope all is well with you.
