The Race to Save the Romanovs with Helen Rappaport

7 October, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Helen Rapport in conversation with Zuleika Rodgers.

2018 is the 100th anniversary of the murder of the Russian Royal family in Ekaterinburg after the Bolshevik Revolution. The myth of the secret escape of one of the Romanov princesses has been immortalised in plays, books and films but the question of how and why the Royal family were left to their fate at the hands of the revolutionaries remains a fascinating tale still to be fully explored. A decade in the making, The Race to Save the Romanovs includes a range of new and unseen sources from the archives including letters, diaries and telegrams. Free from conspiracy theories, it offers the most revealing, detailed and definitive account of the Romanov family and their cruel deaths.

Helen Rappaport is a Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling historian, as well as one of a the few Russian-speaking female historians in the UK.  @HelenRappaport
