In the early hours of July 17, 1918, the former Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, his wife, Alexandra, their children, Olga, Tatiana, Marie, Anastasia and Alexei, as well as several retainers were executed at the Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg. There has been a growing interest in the lives of the Russian imperial family in Russia. The Russian State Archives in Moscow recently opened an exhibition highlighting the family’s detention, killings and also the investigations into them. Some ten years ago, a church was built on the site where the Ipatiev House stood. The church was dedicated as the Church on Blood in Honor of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land, commonly known as the Church on the Blood.
