That monument is interesting. I don't really like the closed eyes, but I guess it's probably alluding to their deaths. Any idea where it's located?

I found it on Russian web, but I think language is French, probably scanned from book. Letters are from IF's exile, IMO.

In Moscow, if I remember correct. Yes, it was made to show Ipatiev night.
Also, the mounment is called Ipatiyevskaya Noch--Ipatiev's night.

Yes, this is French!! It informs about places and dates of the shots of the pictures.

right here it goes -

Olga's hair was blonde right?

was it really blonde as in the top 'wig' on my photo?

or  darker as in the redbrown/red as in the photo?

heres the photo - "http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f295/tom_romanov/page22.jpg"

Tom, IMO, her hair was light brown, like the third one on your photo!  :)

I've always heard Olga's hair described as chestnut brown -- probably a shade between the third and fourth wigs in your photo.

IMO, Anastasia's hair is best represented by the second sample, though perhaps it should be a little darker. I believe Tatiana's was the darkest of all (like sample #4), and Maria's was somewhere in between Olga & Tatiana.

From what I've always heard:


"Господь им дал дар по молитвам их размягчать окаменелые наши сердца за их страдания..Мне думается, что если люди будут молиться Царской Cемье, оттают сердца с Божией помощью."

Bit more reddish to Anastasia, little less reddish to Tatiana and that would be just perfect Holly!
