The publication of diaries and letters
« on: August 02, 2018, 04:57:26 AM »
Hi all! I was wondering if any of you knew that dates that the diaries and letters of the last imperial family were published (both in the East, and more specifically, in the West). Those I'm particularly interested in are-

1. Nicholas' diaries
2. Tsar's letters to the Tsarina
3. Complete wartime correspondence
4. Alix's diary (although it may only be the 1918 diary which has been published in full)?
4. The children's diaries/ letters (although I'm aware that these are few and far between)


I was under the impression that the Tsar's letters to the Tsarina were published relatively early, in the 1920s or 1930s, although I may be wrong, and thought that the complete wartime correspondence wasn't published until after the fall of the USSR (although again, I ask for confirmation here because I'm not sure! haha)

Please if anyone can help please let me know when these texts were first published!

Many many thanks!

To check of course, but for the diary of Nicolas II I found this edition which, it seems to me is the oldest

I do not reply directly to the message above, but I think it's a good place to post this link:

http://www.tzar-nikolai.orthodoxy.ru/n2/pism/index.htm#5_1

It's in Russian, but the site includes many letters from the imperial family. Some are known, others less frequent, it may be interesting for those who do not have some books.
