Anna Kuzminykh - alleged servant in Ipatiev House
« on: April 30, 2023, 10:29:09 PM »
I found this post on Paul Gilbert's site about Anna Kuzminykh, allegedly a servant in the Ipatiev House whom Nicholas sent away, thus saving her life.  Paul cautions in the lead-in that her story should be taken with a cautionary view, since she left no paper trail supporting her account.  My own verdict is that it's baloney, since there is zero mention of her in the Romanovs' diaries, reminiscences of guards, or any of Sokolov's depositions.  Still, I am curious if anyone else has heard of this or finds any credibility in the story

This is not mentioned by anyone , anywhere else , so I'd say its false. Her name is not on the list of servants who went INTO the house.

I too call BS on her story. For one thing, there were no cows at the Ipatiev House, to say nothing of her story about the tsar and empress (who, of course, was largely bedridden towards the end) following her into the barn to talk about them.
