BOOK DESCRIPTION

Over 120 Previously Unpublished Photographs

ENGLISH and Russian Text!

This photo book is a requiem for the pre-war palaces of Peterhof, Tsarskoye Selo, Pavlovsk and Gatchina. A requiem recorded on German film. Even soldiers of the Wehrmacht were charmed by the beauty of the palaces and took pictures of their life and destruction. The world famous palaces were beautiful even as they were engulfed in fire.

This photo book is a tribute to all the museum workers from Peterhof, Pushkin, Pavlovsk and Gatchina - all those people who managed to preserve bits and pieces of prewar art heritage for the whole world.

Furthermore, this photo book is a tribute to all the restoration workers who brought back to life the palaces around Saint-Petersburg - for the whole world to enjoy. This photo book is a reminder about the nature of war. A reminder to the whole world.

PETERHOF: Grand Palace, Imperial Stables, the Imperial train, Znamenka

TSARSKOYE SELO: Catherine Palace, Alexander Palace

PAVLOVSK and GATCHINA
