Well, I think that fatalistic can be defined differently, and until Belochka's post I had never really understood the Russian version of it. I knew there was a difference, but not which. Nicholas is commonly called a fatalist, but it is more how grifh says than the western understanding of fatalism. As for the Imperial Family, there were so many issues involving politics and such that was hard for them to escape or to find aslyum. They may have wanted to, but it was hard. I think until the end, they trusted that things, however they turned out, would be all right. But I think they never gave up hope, or thoughts of escape. They didn't just suurender themselves to doom, Nicholas nor any other member of the family.They tried their best, but also accepted things. I think there is nothing wrong with that. It is indeed hard to understand these sitiuations of history sometimes if they seem renote from us, something we could never experience. The last post illuminated that.

Tana,  What is the little + that you always put after your name?

I noticed that Nicholas and Alix used it in their correspondence as well.

For me it is the constant sign of the RussianOrthodox cross, of which I am proud to wear. It is indeed and in remembrance of the honored name of the young martyr I am named after, who is The Grand Duchess Tatiana. I never forget for one moment in time, the Imperial Family, nor the sweet young girl whose life was wantonly taken from her, as were her siblings. I wish I could find a way to copy the coptic cross and add it after my name, but this is just as well, and just as meaningful for me. When I think of all they faced, it is a small offering that I choose to offer, so I will not forget all the blessings I have daily, including the chance of second life! Thank you for inquiring.

Nice to hear from you Alexz. God Bless!

If assylum for the Imperial Family was so difficult why did they not ask for asylum instead. Maybe asylum would have been easier to achieve, since I cannot even find a definitition in my dictionary for assylum. Maybe an assylum is a refuge for overworked donkeys? Any thoughts on this?

I hadn't even caught that before so it took me a minute to figure out what you meant. I went and changed to title to the correct spelling.  :) On the individual posts it still has the old one but looking up the thread, it's spelled correctly.

It is not nonsense. I know someone, and others, who were facing a bolshivik firing squad, and escaped!

Individuals yes, but the Family with Alexei, who was unable to walk, without being recognised, the scenario changes dramatically.

General Vladimir Nikolayevich Voyeikov, alone, managed to flee from his assassins, but his circumstance was not comparable to that of the I. F.

"If" I had stated the names of the IF directly, than that would have been my main point, certainly.
 My statement started and focused on the lead opening point :
 "It is not nonsense. I know someone, and others, who were facing a bolshivik firing squad, and escaped!"
 It stands in that meaning as I have placed it, that's all. No argument meant nor offered. Thanks.
