Helen Rappaport on the Four Romanov Sisters

On 17 July 1918, four young women walked down twenty-three steps into the cellar of a house in Ekaterinburg. The eldest was twenty-two, the youngest only seventeen. Together with their parents and their thirteen-year-old brother, they were all brutally murdered. Their crime: to be the daughters of the last Tsar and Tsaritsa of All the Russias.

The award-winning writer Helen Rappaport will speak on her latest book, which has been a Sunday Times Top 5 best-seller in Biography 2014 and New York Times best seller in Non-Fiction, and it was voted Good Reads Best Biography & History, 2014.  Copies will be available for purchase and signing on the evening of Helen’s talk.

Tickets for this talk at £7 (£5 for GB Russia members) are only available by email to: membership@gbrussia.org.
