Thanks!

It's a start.

I just looked for it on line in Russian, but everything linked back to that promotional blurb.

Let's keep looking...

The Russian edition is a kind of samizdat.  The ISBN number indicated is 9783837098846, the year 2009 and in stead of a publisher: Lotte Hoffmann-Kuhnt. Printed in 500 copies. The ISBN number is that of the German edition, so that does not help us. This Russian edition was published not long ago, probably this spring.

This book of letters from Empress Alexandra Feodorovna to her youth-friend Toni Becker-Bracht has now been published in Russian, translated by Elena Alexeevna Kopylova.

If you have more information on the Russian edition: publisher, title, ISBN, price, etc., could you please share it with those of us who read Russian, but, alas, not German.

Thank you!
I. N.

Ditto, thanks!
