There is absolutely no way Anna Anderson was Anastasia.

Look at the photos, people! The photos! You don't even need the DNA, the photos don't lie.  ZERO resemblance, and how anyone can think so is beyond my comprehension.

Well, I second the opinion above me. I would like to keep an open mind, but I suspect most of us say that she wasn't Anastasia, and that we are correct on that.. ;) So No!

Don't worry Angel, it's nothing to do with 'open mind' anymore. The DNA proved her to be an imposter, so we know it's not her now. We have proof.

Indeed, there is certainly proof. I don't criticize those who belive in her , or those who still say ''maybe', but to me it's pretty clear.

I don't mean to 'criticize,' though I often get accused of that. What I'm trying to say is, this is now proven, so it's not up to your own personal opinion anymore. No one can tell someone what their favorite color is, or what they like best on their pizza, or their best radio station. That is all opinion, all different and all should be respected. But what we have here is an actual scientific and historical fact- AA wasn't AN. Before the DNA, we didn't know. I used to wonder myself. But now there is an answer.

Let me just add to this: the term "open mind" only applies to subjective issues, and there is just no room for subjectivity here, as the issue is totally objective, she was not AN, and 99% likely to be FS.

This is a bit like looking at a chalkboard with the problem 1 + 1=2 written across it and thinking: " I know they say that 2 is the correct answer here, but I'll keep an open mind just in case!"

Thanks. I was trying to avoid using the 'flat earth' analogy again. ;) Once something has been proven wrong, it's over. No, not just 'to me', but it's actually true, she's not AN, just as the earth is not flat, and 1 +1 =2. Some people still think you can put this is still in the 'what do you want on your pizza' opinion category, but it is not a personal position thing anymore. We have a right answer, and we know that anything else is the wrong answer.

No. Sorry.

I was a bit doubtful at times, because she knew about Ernie's visit in Russia, and I still have no idea, how Franziska Schabowska of all people should have known about it.

But, even ignoring the DNA, I think there are two many points that point against Anna being Anastasia. Most notably that they don't look alike at all. Anderson also seemed to old to me to be Anastasia.

I donīt have the deep knowledge on AA issue that all of you have, but, to be honest, I never believed someone could survive to the cellar of Ipatiev House. From the bottom of my heart...I wish that the children could survive, but my mind tells me that it was not possible.

The trip was not fact but unproven rumor.

She was too old. Fransiska was born in 1896 and Anastasia in 1901 and Fransiska looked much older than her 23 years when fished from that canal.  No way are those the pictures of a girl of 18 which is what Anastasia would have been if she had lived and she doesn't have the same face either. So my vote is no.
