A unique exhibition entitled 1917. Romanovs & Revolution. The End of Monarchy will open at the Hermitage Amsterdam in February 2017, exactly a century after the outbreak of the Russian Revolution. This will be the only showing of the exhibition in Western Europe. It will include over 250 items from the collections of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, the State Archive of the Russian Federation in Moscow, and the Artillery Museum in St Petersburg. Using films, photographs, paintings, objets d’art and historical documents, the show will tell the gripping story of fashionable St Petersburg and the art that flourished there in the early twentieth century, of Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra, and of the explosive political and social circumstances of their reign. Exhibitioncatalogue of the Hermitage in Amsterdam. 216 pages, illustrated, paperback, in English

GDSophie:
I believe Helen Rappaport is writing a new book with a release date of June 28, 2018 called 'The Race to Save the Romanovs' which goes into detail about why the Ally Governments and European royal families did not/tried not to save them. Apparently she's going to explore this topic with new information as she can get access to things we, the public, haven't seen before.
