Murder of the Imperial Family - List of Valuables Taken by Yurovsky from the Romanovs

Taken at the Ipatiev House in the Last Days

The following is a list of valuables formerly belonging to the murdered Imperial family that were catalogued by Yurovsky after the murders and were handed over to Moscow.

This list will be of interest to those who are interested in the life of the Imperial family in capivity and their ultimate fate. They represent a small fraction of the possessions of the family in exile. The fate of these items has only recently been discovered hidden in the Russian archives since the fall of Communism in Russia and published in 1996. Our thanks to Rob Moshein for transcribing the list as printed in "The Last Act of a Tragedy" by V.V. Aleskeyev, Yekaterinburg, 1996. ISBN 5-7691-0394-9; 5-7691-0597-6.
