I don't think I've seen this pic before...just ran across it on Ebay. It almost looks to me like Anastasia is raising a cigarette to her mouth.

you are all very welcome! my pleasure. ;)

i bought it on Ebay. it was pretty cheap, too!

Hey everybody, I don't know if this has been posted already. If so, I apologize. I just bought this magazine and scanned the pictures from it. They were too big for my scanner so some of it might have gotten chopped off, but I think you can read all the words and see most of the photos.

Hi Alixz, there is a previous thread about this with lots of opinions:,933.0.html

Hey Belochka, thanks for the response. That makes sense. I knew the name Dietrich sounded familiar from somewhere, lol. I wasn't going to buy the book. I just saw it and was curious.


Has anyone ever heard of this book? ^^ I found it while browsing Ebay. I don't recognize the author, and since I can't read Russian, I am unable to pick up any clues from the photos...sounds interesting!

aw i always liked that picture. I don't know the story behind it, though . It is kind of sad because it looks like he is surrenduring.

This is a really good book, I thought. Immediatley upon opening my copy (old dusty hardcover without a jacket) there is a cute picture I haven't seen before on the inner lining, of OTMA with a pony...and one of the Grand Duchesses is *actually* smiling!

can anyone tell me, what is the difference between this book and 'Englishman at the Court of the Tsar'? ANOTHER book about Sydney Gibbes!

i am so happy this book is online now!! :D

I read this a while back. It is a little far-fetched but is really interesting...suggests ways in which the Imperial family could've made a break from the Ipatiev house. I really wish it happened the way the book describes, but it is just wishful thinking, I believe. Take it with a grain of salt, but enjoy it! I couldn't put it down.

Hey guys thanks for these pictures! I have never seen them before in any of the books. Do you know where they are from?  :)

It has been a while since I've read it, but I think I remember. According to Lovell, he and Anna Anderson were watching a screening of "King Kong" in the theater, and the movie upset her; the recurring themes of a 'king' being taken down by the 'people' and everything sort of reminded her of the Czar, I guess. And then she supposedly poured her heart out to Lovell and told him things that happened to the family while they were imprisoned in Ekaterinburg...without going into too much disturbing detail she hinted that the entire family was raped, and they were verbally abusive. But then I heard afterward that Lovell fabricated this part of the book and she never said those things at all. So I don't know!

Will do! Thanks for the advice ;)
