Last of the Romanovs: The Family Album
Topic: Exhibitions

The exhibition, Last of the Romanovs: The Family Album, is part of a larger project entitled My family. My country. My Story. being held in Moscow. The exhibition is timed to coincide with several important dates in the history of the Romanov dynasty.
 
On November 1, the church marked the birthday of the Holy Martyr Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna.

In addition, on November 4, the feast of Our Lady of Kazan is celebrated, along with National Unity Day (this holiday has undergone several name changes through the centuries). The latter commemorates the liberation of Moscow from foreign invaders in November 1612. This event marked the end of the Troubles in Russia and the beginning of the Romanov dynasty in 1613, after Tsar Mikhail Feodorovich ascended the throne.

The Ostozhenke Family Club in Moscow will host an exhibit of photographs entitled Last of the Romanovs: The Family Album. The collection of more than 30 vintage photos showcase the family of Emperor Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, their children, as well as the Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna. The photos are little known, and yet will portray to visitors to the exhibit a simple, every day family. The photos show the Imperial family walking and enjoying nature, the August children playing games, family holidays, and more. 

The exhibit will run from November 1st—11th,  2013 at Ostozhenke located at Ulitsa Ostozhenka 7/1 in Moscow.
