Warm in the heart maybe ? In Russia it is very cold, so 20 maybe warm in comparison...

Hello everybody, a warm season's greeting from Helsinki, Finland, not so far away from St. Petersburg.

Guess what? Outside right now -20 and still getting colder.

It is common knowledge, that when it is going to snow, the temperature gets higher. I have more than once said, that "today it is warm" ... that was when it was only -5 or so, snowing, but after a period of -15 to -20.

It's all relative....

Thanks Rudy. Didn't know she visited Finland. I read there was disagreement between the Tsar and Finland on its governing. The Dowager Empress was on the side of the Fins.

Hi, Clockworkgirl21, only -20 C. Sorry for not mentioning it.

Thanks Rudy. Didn't know she visited Finland. I read there was disagreement between the Tsar and Finland on its governing. The Dowager Empress was on the side of the Fins.

Hi, Eric_Lowe. I think, that discussing Russian (Tsarist) - Finnish relations and politics from before 1917 here is too far from this topic. The Dowager Empress as being from Danish origin might therefor have had a soft spot for the Finns in her heart....

How come none of the other diaries have been published in their entirety? Are there any digital scans of these on the web?

Only the 1913 has been translated into English and published thus far, but the rest (1914-17) are in the works.

P.S. No digital scans are available of the diaries.

Looking forward to that. I wonder if the other sisters (like Tatiana & Maria's) would be translated too ?

I am anxiously awaiting more translated diaries also.  I wonder if they could keep us updated on the progress of the others that are being translated?

Maria's diaries no longer exist as far as I know because she and Anastasia burned them at the start of the revolution... Tatiana's do exist, and some of the entries have been published in Russian, but have not been translated into English as far as I know. As difficult as it was to decipher Olga's handwriting, Tatiana's is notoriously even more unreadable, which is probably why people hesitate to do them :). But hey, you never know what the future may bring!
