Thoughts after the symposium “Remembering the 100th year of the Royal Martyrs”

– I was born in Moscow. We came to America, where my father was offered a job, when I was about 8. Last summer we went to Minsk, where we helped out at an orphanage run by St Elizabeth Convent. I was impressed by how organized it was, and by the people who work there. We learned a lot.
This symposium is part of a series on the martyrdom of the Tsar’s Family. I am trying to learn more about the history of the monarchy. Sadly, one rarely hears about it, so I was interested in this symposium. We were also happy to help Fr Andrei organize it.
