Olga's diaries/Help translating entries
« on: December 08, 2004, 08:21:00 AM »
Hi all,

Does anyone have access to copies of Grand Duchess Olga's diaries for 1916.  I am particularly interested in the entry for 18 December 1916.  Radzinsky mentions this in Rasputin the Final Word and partially quotes from it.  The problem is I have seen it quoted differently elsewhere!

Thanks in anticipation

Richard

I recall it being something like: "(Sentence here about Rasputin's death perhaps?  I don't remember.)  It is terribly hard.  We all four slept together.  God help us!"

Could someone tell me why the Olga's diaries and the diaries of her sisters were even not published; just partly? Is there any "political" reason? Does someone in Russia work on this publication? In that case, when will they? I read Georgy work in GARF. Did you work with those diaries? Are they all conserved or not?

There probably isn't enough of a market for a publisher to take interest in them.

Only MN and AN burned their 1917-18 diaries. The others are all in GARF, AFAIK.

If the diaries exist, someone should try to print a compilation... I think there is a market...all of us for starters...-

Is there anywhere when they can be read online?

I think that Diaries are not so intresting thing to read.
(except some people who really interested in Romanovs)
Letters are more interesting reading .
I think Nicholas 's Diaries are very dry.
I think that they wrote their Diaries  taking into account the fact  that  somebody could read it every time.
(Maybe they had double diary (like a double accounting papers of some companies).

The all IF diary sounds  as the Camer-Fourier Journal.
In their diaries the personal attitude to something or somebody was not included at all. I think that they did it for purpose.
