I wonder if they even had any idea it was their last meal.

I don't think so either. It's all just sad.

I couldnĀ“t tell if this was a painting or a picture of the Romanov family. But i really really hope that is just a painting. http://www.romanov-memorial.com/Drama.htm

Of course, this is not a photography! It's only a drawing. I read in Radzinsky's book that perhaps Yurovsky took a photography of the murdered family and servants...but I don't think so. It would have been awful!  :'( :o

There are NO known pictures of the bodies.


So, everything you see is an artist's insterpretation.

I think what Shadowfox is referring to is the film footage which accompanies the article ... depicting the execution squad, the events in the Ipatiev house, and the aftermath.

Does anybody know what the film is from which this footage is taken? It's done rather a good job of looking like the reality must have been.

That painting of the bodies was horrible. :( And such bad taste. Someone drew a woman with no top on, and knowing those sickos, it was probably one of the grand duchesses. So horrible.

The taste for sensationalism, as seen in today's tabloids, is nothing new. There were a number of publications in the 1920s which catered to the same sort of questionable 'taste.'

I am more interested in the film footage on this site, and have written to request more information about it. On the site, you can click on a box which will take you to a place where the same questions I have are asked - about the nature, date, place, and makers of that film footage - but there is no answer! So if somebody else wants to try, maybe we shall get somewhere. Clearly, the site shows artists' renderings of the events of July 16/17, 1918, but is the film footage from some documentary? And if so, what one?
