Re: Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia

I have been looking for the following book:  25 Chapters of My Life: The Memoirs of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna
I found it on Amazon but it is about $300.00 has a reprint ever been made of this?  Thanks for your help

Are you in the USA?  I am gobsmacked by the price of $300.  I don't know about a reprint but it is about 40 pounds on Amazon in the UK which is considerably less.  Kindle App download and purchase would only set you back about $10 but you probably already know that.  It is a good read; I enjoyed it.

I suggest that you keep an eye on THIS WEBSITE. Currently the book is out of stock, but Bookdepository usually renews their stocks in time, and the prize for the book is around 12 or so dollars then.

One of Olga's grandchildren - by Guri - ended up in Australia - not a happy story.

Not sure where best to post this, so:

A friend just sent this to me.

G.D. Olga A.'s letters up for auction:

Russian duchess' letters show fear for Romanovs' safety

Well, actually, I heard that they are being sold now, before a planned book comes out.

And I think that the facts are a bit garbled in the account. A grandson of G.D. Olga would not have the letters which she had written to her sister. The grandson is most likely one of G. D. Xenia's, don't you think?
Nor are these letters newly discovered.
I can't find the reference right now, but they surfaced several years ago, but are only now being put up for auction.

It also seems a bit of an exaggeration to say that G. D. Olga "hated" the British in general.

Still, it's great to have this material available -- more threads in the Romanov tapestry.

You are correct, Xenia's grandchildren kept all of those letters, from Olga and Marie Feodorovna as well.

Fine, but can anyone please tell us where are all the letters which the Imperial Family wrote to G. D. Olga A. from captivity?
Their letters to G. D. Xenia are in the Hoover Institution in Stanford CA.
From the letters to her and others, it is obvious that they wrote to G. D. Olga often too.
So where are those letters? They are never cited or mentioned.
Did she lose them while fleeing across South Russia?

Years ago we asked both Tikhon and Gury Kulikovsky, her sons, but they neither had those letters, nor knew their whereabouts.

Any clues?

I like the picture of Olga A at the entrance to the tent. When and where was it taken?

Somehow it's very Olga A.
