Very interesting interview. I'll preorder the book right away! : )

About the code Olga used in her diaries. I thought the code was cracked, at least the code Olga used in her diary of 1913.

If it was, I was not aware of it. If you have any information about that, please let me know. Thanks! :)

Some of the entries have been decoded in "Nicholas & Alexandra At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family".

I took this picture from a book in Moscow in 2009. I can't remember the name of the book, perhaps it was the new edition of "The Romanovs and the Crimea".

Yes, it probably is. I have a copy of the German language edition of this book, "De Romanows auf der Krim", and this picture can be found on page 260.
