I don't found the link on the forum to the commemoration of the centenary of the assassination of the imperial family organized by the GARF.

It's really awesome.

A thought full of tenderness for the imperial family and those who, a hundred years ago, died with her.

Unfortunately, the tributes are too few. I regret to be so far from Russia, but I think of them on this day.

My English is too weak to express myself more.

Cypriot Monastery Completes Video Tribute to Russian Royal Martyrs

The Monastery of St John the Forerunner in Mesa Potamos, Cyprus, has published a series of high-quality video interviews with top Romanov historians in honor of the 100th anniversary of the martyrdom of the last Royal Family of Russia.

The tribute is entitled “The Romanov Royal Martyrs: Centennial Tribute.” The series consists of six episodes and they include stunning unpublished Romanov colored pictures by acclaimed Russian colorist Olga Shirnina.

The series is as follows:
1. Tsar Nicholas II Through His Last Diary, with Helen Azar.
2. Tsarina Alexandra Through Her Letters, with Helen Azar.
3. The Romanov Children Through Their Writings, with Helen Azar.
4. Nicholas II: His Reign – His Faith – His Family, with Nicholas B.A. Nicholson.
5. The Conspiracy Against Nicholas’ II, with Paul Gilbert.
6. Romanov Family: Faith in God to the End, with Helen Rappaport.

You can find the special Romanov Royal Martyrs web site, created by the Monastery of St John the Forerunner Mesa Potamos at:

The Monastery of St John the Forerunner is also the publisher of the first complete Greek-language biography of the Royal Martyrs, which was released in January of this year. The English language edition of the book will be published by St Vladimir’s Seminary Press in 2019.

Helen Rappaport wrote the following on her Facebook page:

“Dear friends – I am intensely proud to preview this page of my contribution to the wonderful website of the Fathers of the Mesa Potamos Monastery in Cyprus. As many of you know, they have produced an exquisite and scholarly new book about the Romanov family, currently available in Greek, that will be published in English early next year. Having offered advice and shared information with the fathers during the course of their work on the book, they asked me to contribute an audio piece about the Romanov family's religious faith. This video is my parting tribute to the Romanovs, with whom I have travelled as a writer and historian for the last 11 years. I am honoured to have been asked to contribute to this beautiful website, which has been constructed with such love and devotion by the fathers of Mesa Potamos Monastery. I am not a monarchist, or a royalist and am religiously agnostic, but for me it is the private family life of the Romanovs that defines them as human beings. I admire their religious devotion and I hope you will all share in, what for me, is a farewell to them and a final moment of remembrance”.
