Helen Rappaport:  The Race to Save the Romanovs - The Truth Behind the Secret Plans to Rescue Russia's Imperial Family

On 17th July 2018 Russia will mark a centenary that is loaded with significance in the minds of the Russian people: the murder of their last Imperial family, a horrifying act of murder perpetrated by the Bolsheviks.

In this major new work of investigative history, Helen Rappaport tells the truth about the secret plans to rescue Russia's imperial family, uncovering why the Romanov's European royal relatives failed to save them. Rappaport draws on an unprecedented range of unseen sources, tracking down missing documents, destroyed papers and covert plots to reveal the fierce loyalty, bitter rivalries and devastating betrayals that led the imprisoned Romanovs to their fate.

Helen Rappaport is a historian specialising in Victorian history and revolutionary Russia.

Helen will be in conversation with award-winning writer and historian Jason Goodwin.

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.
