Exhibition on Death of Nicholas II's Family to Open at Peter and Paul Fortress
Topic: Exhibitions

The exhibition “The Century-long Investigation. The Death of the Family of Emperor Nicholas II” will open on June 5 at the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg. The exhibition is dedicated to the history of execution of the royal family near Yekaterinburg in 1918, tells the story of the events leading up to this tragedy, and subsequent events: in particular, the investigation into the murder of the affairs of the royal family in 1918 and 1990, the process of identification of the found remains.

The basis of the exhibition is materials from the State Archive of the Russian Federation (Moscow). Unique exhibits – personal items and relics of the royal family – for the exhibition will be provided by the State Hermitage Museum and the State Museum-Preserve "Tsarskoye Selo", and documents and photographs related to the burial of the remains of Nicholas II, his family and servants in the Peter and Paul Cathedral in July 1998 - by the State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg. 

Pages from the catalogue for the 2012 exhibition held at GARF in Moscow
 
The materials of the exhibition illustrate the life of the royal family from March 1917 to July 1918, from being under house arrest in Tsarskoye Selo, then in Tobolsk and Yekaterinburg, before the execution. Among the important historical documents will be the act of abdication of Emperor Nicholas II on the throne, and in the act of abdication of Michael Alexandrovich, telegram of Presidium of the Ural Regional Council to Lenin and Yakov M. Sverdlov on the execution of Nicholas Romanov, 17 July 1918. There will be demonstrated the latest diaries of Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, as well as typescripts and audio memories of participants of the execution.
 
The foundation for this unique exhibition will be based largely on the same exhibit held at GARF in Moscow in June 2012. A comprehensive and richly illustrated catalogue was published for the Moscow exhibit.
