Fremont Public Library

Meeting Room A & B

The year 2018 marks the 100th Year Anniversary of the tragic murders of the Royal Russian Imperial Romanov family.

On July 17, 1918, Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Tsarina Alexandra and their five children and four of the family’s servants were told to dress quickly and go down to the cellar of their family home for a photo. They were told the photo would cease rumors that the family had escaped.

Instead, the entire family and their servants were brutally murdered by Bolshevik troops under the orders of Ural Regional Soviet. All bodies were accounted for—except one. Princess Anastasia, the youngest of the Romanov daughters, was not found.

Historian Jim Gibbons will talk about the tragic deaths of the Romanov family and its critical impact on World War I. Gibbons will discuss the lives of the Romanovs and the events that took place before and after the family’s abrupt and devastating end. He will explain the life of Anastasia and the legend of her survival.
