The investigation into the murders of Tsar Nicholas II and his family, considered as one of the worst crimes of 20th century Russian history lasted nearly 100 years.
An exhibition devoted to the investigation has opened in the Exhibition Hall of the State Archives of the Russian Federation (GARF) in Moscow.
Visitors to the exhibition learn about the final months in the lives of the Russian Imperial family in the Ipatiev House at Ekaterinburg. This is followed by the difficult, confusing, and often contradicting findings of the investigation in their murders and the disposal of their remains.
The exhibition offers the most comprehensive study of an event that has Russia for the past century. Rare photographs, film footage, documents, and personal items are on display. The details of the shootings on the night of July 16/17 are have been painstakingly recreated from photographs taken in the Ipatiev House.
A stunning 175-page catalogue of the exhibit has been produced in Russian, and is richly illustrated throughout with photographs from the items on display at the exhibition.
