Thanks for the information. Some of the items from GARF are pictured in the exhibition catalogue "Nicholas & Alexandra: The Last Imperil Family of Tsarist Russia"

Wait a minute, I heard the book was being published in the US by an American? It should be coming soon?

No, you misunderstand. If you look just a few posts back, you'll see that Georgiy mentioned a Russian language book called Sisters of Mercy, which contains susbstantial excerpts from OTMA's diaries and letters. This is NOT the long-awaited collection of OTMA's diaries, but a selection of writings dealing with the nursing work the women of the IF (Alexandra, Olga, Tatiana, and Olga A) did during the war.

From my understanding, it's coming out in winter 2007/2008.

Here is a quote about it:
He/She is still working ath his/her project.

From time to time, i'm contacting him/her. But he/she tells me that hopefully he/she will release this book in winter 2007/2008.
