Anastasia

Anastasia

Anastasia's own photos, watercolors, letters, and diaries reveal an engaging portrait of Anastasia and her family.

The czar and his family were great photographers, and they spent many hours pasting pictures in their albums. Anastasia and her sisters added their own decorations of plants and flowers.

For more than eighty years, the diaries, letters, and photo albums of the csar's family were kept a secret. Now they are displayed in the State Archives in Moscow.

The photo album made by Anastasia and many of her letters to her father and friends reveal not only her daily life with her family but her wonderful sense of humor. Their close, happy family life does not foretell their violent end. Buy this book
