and in Ksenia Sfiris 's interview, she explains a nice anecdote with Felix: she lunched at her grandparents often and they used to order their money for the mounth in a envelpe, and once when she were a teen after the lunch, Felix took the envelope and told Irina "I will buy her her first shoes with high heel" and Irina answered "you can't  do it, it's all we got for the month" but Felix said " I don't care about that, I want to be the first man who will buy her first high heel shoes" and he bought it to her

she also talked about their house and said there were horrible drawings in their living room, there were made by Felix, there were monsters that he saw in his nightmares; She said when her grandparents died, it's the first thing her mother sold.
We see some of thoses drawings in the documentary
I don't know who bought them or what they become
Does anyone know if they still exists?

I have a problem with my tape: I watched the whole tape this afternoon and it seems when I've recorded it I cut the generic where the title is writen, as the ads.
From memory I think the title is "memoires du passé" or "memoires d'exils", I'm trying to check it on the channel's site
Anyone else saw it and remember the title? It's by Frederic Mitterand

I did some research and yes it is, "Mémoires d'exil " by Frédéric Mitterrand. There seems to be both a book and documentry film. I think I may look into both of them, however it doesn't help that I don't speak French : ( If only it was english or even spanish...either way I'll probably end up getting it. Thanks Loulia !!

thank ashanti for your research! if you can get the documentary I think it will be interesting for you even if you don't speak french because there are a lot of rare photos and films from the time they lived in exil (and even some of the IF before and bduring the revolution)

That's from a magazine I've found in my archive of old magazines.

The artist is Zenaida Serebryakova.

Here's an article in Russian wikipedia with her self-portait:
