To Russia With Love...
I read this article on Sunday, November 25th. I don't know how many of you saw it or something similar. If you've ever read a historical accounting about the Russian Revolution then this might be of some interest to you. All the stories and claims from different women claiming to be Anastasia are over. Now we know. Now there is closure. Now the history books can finally put to rest the unhappy and tragic end to Czar Nicholas II's family.
Of course I knew they had been held prisoner. I also remembered from something I read that they were all shot. Now with the help of forensics we also know they were knifed repeatedly and then acid poured on them to obscure the identity of the bodies. Rather horrifying isn't it? It is uncertain how much of the horror the Romanovs experienced. Did the knifings take place first or the shooting for instance? They were killed along with the family physician and several servants.
The only good to come from this is that all the family members are accounted for and can be laid to rest. Finally.
We aren't the only country with 'ugly' in its history.
