A collection of approximately 200 notes and letters written by the imperial family during their captivity in Tsarskoe Selo, Tobolsk, and Yekaterinburg. (Text is printed in pre-revolutionary orthography.) Also contains a biographical index and supplemental section of prayers and poetry favored by the imperial family during their exile.
Contains approximately 80 short letters and notes not found in other sources*; for example, letters by Maria and Anastasia Nikolaevna to the Federovsky Lazaret.
Pered Rasstrelom (Before the Shooting)
Skorbnaia Pamiatka (Sorrowful Memorial)
in my opinion:
Recommended primarily for Russian speakers and serious collectors. The vast majority of the longer letters are duplicated in Pered Rasstrelom, Skorbnaya Pamiatka, and Vyrubova.
