Russian royal family murdered by the Neanderthals...

Shown here, the tremendously beautiful Russian royal family murdered by Jewish revolutionaries in the wake of the Bolshevik seizure of power in Russia. Snapped in 1917, the photo is one of the last pictures taken of the family before the Revolution. From Left: Princesses Olga and Maria, Nicholas II, Czarina Alexandra, Princess Anastasia, Czarevitch Alexei and Princess Tatiana. Although it has been claimed that the remains of members of the royal family have been uncovered, the Russian Orthodox Church (which has canonized the family) rejects the findings of the commission which examined the remains. The subject remains a controversy in Russia today. (PHOTO: Agence France Presse)




Russia's Christian Martyrs


PERHAPS THE MOST NOTABLE VICTIMS OF JEWISH BOLSHEVISM were Russian Czar Nicholas II, his wife, Alexandra, and their beautiful children. They have rightly been canonized as saints by the Russian Orthodox Church. This heart-breaking account of the slaughter of this family demonstrates that there was much more at work behind the crime by the Jewish murderers than 'Just politics." The author, incidentally, is a Russian attorney who held a post in the administration of Vladimir Putin.

In the early days of the Communist state in Russia, Bolshevism was idealized by many in the West as a benevolent, almost Christ-like doctrine of charity and love for the poor and the downtrodden. Many thought it would free the oppressed and exploited; that it would unleash the promise of universal education and universal freedom; that it would usher in a new age, a utopia.
This was before the Bolshevik mass murder of the Russian intelligentsia and the initiation of the Gulag system. Communist historians themselves estimate that over 20 million Christian Russians perished and tens of millions more suffered. This was before the induced famines in Ukraine that starved to death between 7 and 11 million Ukrainians, mostly children and the elderly. It was before the Red terror swept through all of Eastern Europe and penetrated even to the heart of Europe.
For many naive souls in 1918, Communism seemed like a noble experiment of man. But the story of the murder of a truly noble man along with his loving wife and five children offered a portent to the true nature of the Communist leadership and the monumental human suffering that lay ahead.
On March 3, 1917, Nicholas II, the last czar of Russia, abdicated for himself and his son. Within hours of their abdication, the last ruling Romanovs were arrested by Bolsheviks.
By July 1918 the Romanov family was almost a year and a half in the hands of the Bolsheviks. Vladimir Lenin and Yakov Sverdlov had moved the family to Ekaterinburg, a town in the Ural Mountains, far from the main centers of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and far from the eyes of the world press and diplomatic corps.
The prisoners included Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra Feodorovna and their children: Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and Alexei. Also included were the family doctor, Eugenie Botkin, the cook, Ivan Kharitonov, the valet, Alexei Trupp and the maid, Anna Demidova.
This was a period in which the Bolsheviks were brutally stamping out any resistance and consolidating their power over the Russian political and social establishment. In many parts of Russia they met stiff resistance from many quarters, referred to as the White Russians, as compared to the Bolshevik Red Russians, who sported the red flags of Communism.

The Bolshevik guards treated the deposed czar and his family with a daily routine of degradation, contempt and humiliation. Drunken Bolsheviks sexually harassed the beautiful daughters of the czar and czarina, making obscene and lewd remarks and even pursuing the girls into the toilet. They belted out anti-Christian songs, which deeply offended the devoutly Christian family. Although Bolshevik officials had copious foodstuffs, they put the family on a near-starvation diet.
The family endured their misfortunes with strength and a retreat into intense family closeness and love as well as Christian prayer and study.
During the night on July 16-17, 1918, the czar, his wife and their four daughters and son were murdered by gunfire and bayonets. Their four loyal retainers were also butchered at the same time in the Ipatiev house in Ekaterinburg.
After all the prisoners gathered in the tiny cellar room, a group of Bolsheviks burst in. They announced to the Romanovs that the Soviet power decided that they should be executed.
After the announcement the gunfire began. As the smoke dispersed, it could be seen that the whole room was filled with blood and bodies. Bolsheviks at the scene said that some of the children survived the initial gunfire. The assassins then pitilessly finished off the bloodied and moaning daughters and the son with bayonets.
This was the ignoble and brutal end of the Christian Romanov czars' dynasty that had served Russia since 1613. This was not an execution, for there was no investigation or court decision. It was murder -- not only of the czar and his wife, but also of even their young children and household employees in a brutality that symbolizes the true nature of Bolshevism.

What were the driving forces that led to this murder, and to the murder of so many Christian Russians? By learning what happened here and the events surrounding this crime, a view is opened to the hatreds that could expose the Bolsheviks as the greatest mass murderers and human rights violators in the history of mankind.
In the beginning of the 20th century, Russia was involved in several wars and underwent some unsuccessful revolutions. Because of those turbulent times and many victims, radical opposition gave Nicholas II a nickname, "Nicholas the Bloody." But is it just to put all the blame on the czar for what happened to Russia? Actually, nowadays it is popular to write about Nicholas II as a bloodthirsty monarch who, despite his alleged ruthlessness, lost power to the Bolsheviks. But in fact, the last Russian czar was a pioneer in certain areas of politics and had done a lot of good for the Russian empire. If anything, he didn't fight the Bolsheviks with nearly the toughness needed to defeat these utterly ruthless revolutionaries.
[We also note that the famous reformer Czar Alexander II was murdered by the Communists in 1881. See page 55.-Ed.]
Nicholas II had no modern publicist or spin-doctor, but his patriotism appeared clearly in his deeds, though not in his words. Few leaders in history ever did more to advance the well being of the common people than did Nicholas II.

Before World War I Russia enjoyed significant economic development and growth. In 1885-1913 the growth rate of farm industry was on average 2%, and the growth rate of industry reached 4.5 to 5% per year. In the beginning of the 20th century, Russia attracted a lot of foreign capital. It was invested mainly in mining, manufacturing and engineering. Because of this favorable situation, by 1913 production volume in different branches of Russian industry was increased by a factor of five to 13. Russia was in second place in oil production worldwide, in fourth place in engineering, and fifth place in coal and iron ore extraction and steel smelting.
In 1900-1913 the aggregated agricultural output increased threefold. Russia was tops in the world in grain production.
Nicholas II implemented advanced labor legislation and significantly improved the position of Russian industrial workers. Free medical care was introduced in factories with more than 100 workers. (In 1898 such factories employed 70% of all Russian workers.) Since 1903 employers had to pay injury allowances (workmen's compensation) in the amount of 50-66% of a worker's salary. In 1912 a mandatory accident insurance was imposed in Russia. In 1900-1910 the level of unemployment did not exceed 1-2%.
In 1905 the czar made steps toward a constitutional monarchy. The Revolution in 1905 and utter defeat of Russia in the Russo-Japanese war forced the czar to restrict the absolute monarchy for the first time in the Romanov dynastic history. On August 6, 1905 the first representative legislative body (the state Duma) was established. Some historians see this step as a move toward liberalization and democratization of Russian society. But Nicholas II agreed upon restrictions on an absolute monarchy. The harsh events after 1905 showed that the Duma became a vanguard of legal opposition to the czar.
In 1899, Nicholas initiated the holding of the First Hague Peace Conference. In 1901 Nicholas II was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The czar stood up forcefully for arms limitation as well as for peaceful settlement of international conflicts and the codification of war laws.
Nicholas II and all members of his family were the true patriots of Russia and were deeply religious people. The last Romanov ruling family was an example of sincere love and devotion to traditional family values. Proof of this can be found in the many diaries and letters of the Romanovs.


Nicholas II was not the first Russian czar to be murdered by revolutionary Jewish terrorists. In 1881 his grandfather, Czar Alexander II, was murdered by bomb-wielding Jews who operated under the name Narodnaya Volya ("People's Will" in English). His assassination is shown above. Alexander II was very much a progressive ruler, liberal and open to reform, dedicated to serving the interests of all of the people of Russia. Ironically, Alexander's policy of openness gave freedom to the Jewish terrorists to organize and operate, resulting in his murder. As a direct consequence, many Russian patriots began turning against the Jewish people, angry at the murder of the czar. Today Jewish groups decry the retaliation against Jewish terrorism by the Russian people as "anti-Semitic pogroms." ILLUSTRATION: CMSED001251/NEWSCOM.COM


Nicholas II deeply loved the motherland and suffered for it during the Revolution. After the Bolshevik coup, it was clear that he suffered not for himself, personally, but for Russia. On March 15, 1918 the czar wrote in his diary: "How much longer will our poor Motherland be crucified and pulled apart by domestic and foreign enemies? Sometimes it seems it is impossible to endure this any longer."
Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna was, before her marriage to Nicholas II, known as Germany's Princess Alix von Hessen und bei Rhein. She undoubtedly loved Russia strongly, absolutely the same way the czar loved it. Her majesty had a very religious nature. She converted to Orthodox Christianity and was baptized in an Orthodox church before her marriage in 1894. And she accepted the religion not just formally, but with all her heart, mind and will.
The personal letters between Nicholas and Alexandra are filled with love and compassion for each other. Historians say that their honeymoon lasted all 23 years of their marriage.
The daughters of the royal couple -- the grand duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia -- were brought up without excess luxury. They were well educated, modest and religious. During World War I the grand duchesses worked as sisters of charity in the Russian hospitals. They had a keen sense of belonging to Russia and its people as their parents did. For instance, in 1916, plans were discussed that had Olga, the oldest daughter, becoming the wife of Romanian Prince Karol. But the girl firmly refused the idea with the words "I am Russian and want to remain Russian."
Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna "was known for her compassionate heart and desire to help others, but also for her temper, blunt honesty and moodiness." When reading a history lesson, Olga remarked that she was glad to live in current times, because people were good and not as evil as they had been in the past. Unfortunately and ironically, Olga was wrong. She fell an innocent victim of the cruel Bolshevik regime in her prime.

"The Bolshevik revolution happened not just by the will of discontent Russian commoners. Much more powerful and organized forces were behind the revolutionary hurricane. "

The second Romanov daughter was Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna. Tatiana was described as a tall and slender girl, with dark auburn hair and dark blue-gray
eyes. She was refined and elegant. Tatiana was considered by many courtiers the most beautiful of the four grand duchesses. Tatiana was practical and had a natural talent for leadership. Her sisters gave her the nickname "the Governess" and sent her as their group representative when they wanted their parents to grant a favor.
The third daughter was kind-hearted and good-tempered Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna. As a child she was so sweet that some compared her to Botticelli's angels. Maria was a good-natured, cheerful and friendly young lady .
The fourth daughter, Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna, was a tomboy, a brisk and merry girl. Living up to her nickname "Imp," young Anastasia grew into a vivacious and energetic child, described as short and inclined to be chubby, with blue eyes and strawberry-blond hair. Her sharp, witty remarks sometimes hit people's sensitive spots. Anastasia loved animals. She also had a talent for drawing.
The single son of the royal couple was Czarevitch Alexei. By order of Czar Paul (dating from the end of the 18th century), only a male could become an heir to the Russian throne.
But Alexei was sick with hemophilia. Because his blood didn't clot properly, any bump or bruise could kill him. It was one of the main personal (and state) worries for the family. Alexei had what Russians usually call "a golden heart." He easily felt an attachment to people, he liked them and tried to do his best to help them, especially when it seemed to him that someone was unjustly hurt.
Despite the restrictions on his activity, Alexei was active and mischievous by nature. He had simple tastes. He refused to speak anything but Russian and enjoyed wearing Russian costume.
Alexei was well aware that he might not live to adulthood. When he was 10, his older sister Olga found him lying on his back looking at the clouds and asked him what he was doing. "I like to think and wonder," Alexei replied. Olga asked him what he liked to think about. "Oh, so many things," the boy responded. "I want to enjoy the Sun and the beauty of summer as long as I can. Who knows whether one of these days I shall be prevented from doing it?"
The Romanov family was devoted to Russia until the end. They all lived and died according to the highest principles they believed in. The royal family stayed together through their last breaths of life during the massacre of July 16-17, 1918.
Nicholas II, Alexandra Feodorovna and their five innocent children were killed by the Bolsheviks secretly, without any prosecution or court decision. Why?
Official sources and history textbooks inform people about a leading role of the proletariat (the workers and peasants) in the 1917 Revolution. Politically correct "court historians" stated that it happened due to the disastrous state of the Russian economy and the utmost discontent with the czar's domestic and foreign policy.
But the truth was that by 1913, Russian peasants owned 72% of the land and owned their own farms for the most part.
The Russo-Japanese War and World War I essentially destabilized the country. The situation was favorable to the enemies of Russia. And in 1917 the disastrous revolution destroyed the old Russia. The Bolshevik revolution happened not by the will of discontented Russian commoners. Much more powerful and organized forces were behind the revolutionary hurricane.
Now that Soviet state archives are open and available for the public, one can see the new picture of the old events.

Czarist Russia had long been caught in the pinchers between Jewish Bolshevism and the forces of international capitalism personified by the elite families and financial groups surrounding the Rothschild Empire and its global tentacles. Shown here is an 1849 caricature reflecting the theme that a "loan monger" (that is, an international money lender in the sphere of the Rothschild banking dynasty) is "grinding swords for Austria and Russia." In other words, the loan monger expected to profit from war between the two empires. Following the Bolshevik Revolution, the considerable wealth of the Romanov dynasty itself-not to mention the Russian national treasury itself -- was looted by the Jewish Communists and billions of dollars were siphoned off into "Western" banks that were controlled by the Rothschild family and its satellite banking families. Although much is said about the alleged looting of Jewish assets by the Nazis before and during World War II, the facts about the looting of Russia-correctly described in the book History's Greatest Heist -- remain largely unknown.

Many thousands of Jewish-written volumes exist chronicling the hundreds of years of ethnic struggle between the Jewish people and the Russian people. Heartfelt Jewish historical accounts of "anti-Semitism" and suppression by the Russians are still written even today. On the opposite hand, hundreds of books have been written by Russians detailing Jewish financial thievery and exploitation of both the Russian economy and the peasantry.
Ironically, only a fraction of books detail the role of the ethnic conflict between the Russian nobility and organized Jewry that had a dynamic role in both the revolution and the ferocity of the suppression of the Russian people. The Bolshevik Revolution offered not a chance for Jewish emancipation, but for revenge against a traditional enemy.
It is well known that the revolution in Russia was prepared long before 1917. The 19th century was shaken by revolutionary ferment: the Decembrist revolt of 1825; the birth of political terrorism; Alexander II's murder. The French, German (Marxist) and Russian revolutionary doctrines worked as the theoretical basis for the revolutionary movements. Sensing the tendencies of the time, young radical Russian Jews actively participated in those movements. And by the end of the 19th century, the Jews played vanguard roles. By 1917 atheistic Jews took the leading role in the revolutionary movement in Russia.
The Jewish dominance in the 1905 and 1917 revolutions happened for good reason. On the one hand, the radical Jewish youth rebelled against the traditional Jewish community in Russia and split from it. They stood against the dogmatic religious Jewish values and total control from the elders over the rest of Jewish society. On the other hand, international Jewry recognized the young Russian Jews' energy as a force toward destroying the hated Russian empire.
International Jewish capitalists provided copious funding for the revolutionaries. American Jewish financier Jacob Schiff gave $20 million to the Bolshevik revolution. At the time he was one ofthe wealthiest men in the world, as head of the large banking house Kuhn & Loeb.
Jews dominated the leadership of international Bolshevism. By 1918, the chief governing body of the new Bolshevik state was the Council of Peoples Commissars. Records establish that Jews constituted at least 300 out of a total of 384 Bolshevik commissars that ruled Russia. Even more shockingly, only 13 revolutionaries among 384 commissars were actually ethnic Russians, which makes the term "Russian Revolution" an inaccurate description.
Jacob Schiff's investment return was very profitable for his bank. In 1921, the Bolsheviks deposited over 600 million rubles with Kuhn & Loeb.
Schiff, in loyalty to his Russian Jewish brethren, had earlier financed the enemies of Russia and used his financial influence to keep Russia away from the money market of the United States, thus harming Russia's fiscal health. He even floated the large Japanese war loans of 1901-1905, thus making possible the Japanese victory over Russia.
Felix, Max and Paul Warburg, Otto H. Kahn, Mortimer L. Schiff, Jerome J. Hanauer, Simon Guggenheim, Max Breitung, Isaak Seligman, William Weissman, Olaf Ashberg and others were the other Jewish financiers of the socialist revolution in Russia. Jewish financial and media powerbrokers in Russia and around the world was learning to work in concert for what they saw as the interests of the Jewish people.
The utopian Marxist philosophy, the zealous enthusiasm of Jewish revolutionaries and international Jewish financial clout made the revolution in Russia possible.

At the time of the murder of the czar and his family, those who composed the inner circle of the Bolshevik faction in revolutionary Russia consisted of Vladimir
Lenin (at least one-half Jewish), Leon Trotsky (a Jew whose real name was Lev Bronstein) Yakov Sverdlov (Jewish), [Lev] Kamenov (Jewish) and [Grigori] Zinoviev (Jewish). All serious studies of the Bolshevik revolution -- including those written by Jewish authors -- acknowledge (if occasionally with reluctance) the overwhelming Jewish role in the leadership of Bolshevism and of the revolutionary regime that was established. The people behind the specific organization and murder of the Romanovs were Philip Goloschokin, Petr Voikov and Yakov Yurovsky, all of whom were Jewish.
Robert Wilton, a Russian-based correspondent of The London Times and author of The Last Days of the Romanovs, wrote that, "the Bolshevik Revolution was nothing but one phase of the wider program that reflected an age-old religious struggle between Christianity and the Jewish forces of darkness."
The destruction of the Old Russia started with the killing of its czar and his innocent family and employees. Early socialist historians denied the Bolshevik leaders' complicity in the Romanovs' murder. But the telegrams between the Ural Council and the Bolshevik leaders in Moscow in July 1918 proved that the decision was actually made in Moscow. The content of the telegrams shows the consent of Lenin and Sverdlov upon the execution of Nicholas II. Lenin shared the idea of the revolutionary Sergey Netchayev (19th century) on the annihilation of the whole czarist family: "We will do what this great revolutionary has not accomplished!"

"Jewish financial & media power in Russia and around the world was learning to work in concert for what they saw as the interest of the Jewish people."

Originally the Bolsheviks planned a full-scale public process against the czar. And Trotsky was meant to be a chief accuser. But it never happened. In 1918 the Russian Civil War burst out. And Lenin and the others decided it was no time for such a formality as a public trial of the former czar. In addition, if a public pretense of trial was held for the czar, the Bolsheviks couldn't very well kill the czar's heirs along with him. The Jewish enemies of the czar had long vowed to wipe out the Romanov line.
Sverdlov was the direct organizer of the slaughter. He managed it from the Kremlin. Lenin called Sverdlov "the most professional revolutionary." Sverdlov was a very talented organizer. He succeeded in organizing the murder of the czar's family, the oppression of the Cossacks and the establishment of the "Red terror" against the revolution's enemies after the second murder attempt against Lenin in August 1918.
The names of direct executioners ofthe murder in Ekaterinburg are unclear due to the unreliability of the documents. For instance, the known document "Yurovsky's list" contains an alleged list of persons who shot the czar, his family and servants in the Ipatiev house. The document was dated July 18, 1918. A supposed group of murderers consists of Y. Yurovsky, G. Nikulin, P. Medvedev, S. Vaganov and seven "Letts": A. Vergasi, L. Kh(g)orvat, V. Greenfeld, E. Nad, A. Fekste, A. Fisher, E. Edelstein. However, some researchers believe the document was falsified and was leaked to the press of Germany in 1956 by a former Austrian captive I. Mayr. According to the Russian researcher Plotnikov, the list of executioners also could . include P. Yermakov, A. Kabanov, M. Medvedev, V. Netryebin and Ya. Tselms.
The direct murderer, a commandant of the Ipatiev house, was a Jew, Yankel Yurovsky. Those who planned to kill the Romanovs assumed that Russians would not shoot the czar and innocent members of his family, so the bulk of the murderers were purposely chosen to be Jews.
Those who executed the Romanovs did not feel the committed deed as a burden. Morality was substituted by the "revolutionary conscience" in those people.
The Bolshevik Ural Council (Ural soviet) made the official decision to execute the czar. It was made on July 6, 1918 after active "negotiations" with leaders in the Kremlin. Without any public investigation or hearing, the Ural Council stated in its decision: " ... In accordance with the people's will, the Executive Committee (of the Ural Council) decided to execute the former Czar Nikolai Romanov, who is guilty in countless bloody crimes."
One of the leading organizers in the Urals was Philip Goloschokin, a Jew. He was a personal friend of Sverdlov. It is known that in the beginning of July 1918 he was in Moscow, and that he visited the Kremlin, where he probably received instructions on the Romanovs' fate.
The most active member of the Ural Council was also a Jew, Pinkhus Voikov (Pinkhus Yeiner). He signed the decision on the slaughter of the czar. In addition to it, Voikov's name was stated on the two written demands to the drugstore with instructions to provide a proxy with a large amount of sulfuric acid. The chemical was later used for destroying the remains of the Romanovs.

Pictured above is a virtual "year book" of top Bolshevik mass murderers and propagandists -- all Jewish. First row (left to right): Lev Mekhlis, known as "Stalin's Hatchet Man"; Felix Dzerzhinsky (a Polish Communist) who founded the Bolshevik secret police (Cheka, later NKVD); and Karl Radek, who was active in the Polish and German Bolshevik movements before World War I and an international Communist leader after the Bolshevik revolution. Middle row (left to right): Genrikh Yagoda, the head of the NKVD, Soviet internal affairs and border guards from 1924 to 1936; Lavrenti Beria, chief of Soviet security and the NKvd; and Lazar Kaganovich, one of the men responsible for the Soviet famine of 1932--1933. Bottom row (left to right): Leon Trotsky, a Bolshevik revolutionary and theorist. He was one of the leaders of the Russian October Revolution, second only to Lenin; Yakov Sverdlov was the man who ordered the execution of the czar and his family; Bela Kun, a Hungarian Communist politician and Bolshevik agent who ruled Hungary as leader of the short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919.


The circumstances of the Romanovs' murder in the Ipatiev house that night are unclear and, perhaps, will always remain so. The last moments of the Romanovs' lives were described in many articles and books, even memoirs of the direct executioners exist. None of them can claim to be absolute truth. Historical documents to some extent will always reflect the viewpoint of their creators. Many public, personal and international interests were intertwined in this bloodshed. Nevertheless, many researchers nowadays rely on the book by Russian investigator Nikolai Sokolov. The book is based on the substantial factual material that he gathered in 1919-1924.
Sokolov's investigation stated that a murder happened in the Ipatiev house one day between July 17 and 22, 1918. The cellar room contained marks of bullet shots, bayonets, human blood on the floor and walls, and bullets stuck in the paneling of the room: "The killing was performed by means of revolvers and bayonets. [ ... ] More than 30 shots were made; it was impossible to concede that all the hits were through and were not remaining in the victims' bodies."
Sokolov's book does not contain the murder details. But the horrendous picture of the bloodshed against these 11 defenseless prisoners of the Bolsheviks is described in memoirs of direct participants of the slaughter. For instance, Strekotin recalled: "They [the Romanovs and their servants] did not die for a long time; they were crying, moaning, convulsing. That lady -- the madam -- was dying with especial difficulty. Yermakov stabbed her whole chest through and through. He hit her with a bayonet so hard that every time the bayonet drove deeply into the floor.
"Generally speaking, it [the slaughter-author's note] was very disorganized. For instance, young Alexei 'swallowed' 11 bullets before he finally died. It turned out he was a very tenacious lad."
Netryebin's memories: "The youngest daughter of the former czar fell on her back and feigned death. She was noticed by comrade Yermakov and killed with a shot in her chest. He stepped on both of her hands and made a shot into her chest. He did not forget to shoot down a little dog of Anastasia, Jemmy."

Jewish involvement in the Romanovs' murder was so prominent that some researchers even raised the question of whether or not it had a ritual nature. This question was asked also because strange coded signs and numbers were found in the cellar room of the Ipatiev house.
The Russian Prosecutor General's Office announced that "the investigation totally rules out the ritual nature of the murder .... The investigation did not find evidence that the note on the window had a kabalistic nature."
The investigator N. Sokolov wrote that he had found a peculiar inscription written in the German language on the southern wall of Room No. II: "Belsatzar ward in selbiger Nacht/Von seinen Knechten umgebracht."
The quotation, taken from the poem Belsazar by Heinrich Heine, a poet of Jewish extraction born in Germany, means in English "Belsazar was, on the same night, killed by his servants." Belshazzar (as it is spelled in the West) was the gentile king of Babylon who, in the Old Testament story, saw "the writing on the wall" foretelling his destruction (Daniel 5). He was killed as punishment for his offenses against Israel's God. In a clever play on the Heine quotation, the unknown writer, certainly one of the killers, has substituted "Belsatzar" for Heine's spelling "Belsazar," in order to signal even more clearly his intended symbolism. The Heine inscription described the racial/ethnic character of the murders: A gentile king had just been killed as an act of Jewish retribution.
Additionally there were occult signs and numbers scrawled on the wall of the basement of the Ipatiev house where the murders took place. A specialist on the Kabala, M. Skaryatin, an Orthodox Christian historian, L. Bolotin and a specialist on the history of Masonry, 1. Plotnikov, have argued that those signs are clearly Kabalistic and not just happenstance numbers and symbols written for no reason.
Skaryatin decrypted those coded signs in 1925: "The head of religion, people and the state (Russian) was killed here; the order is executed." Although some Jewish writers criticized the conclusions of Skaryatin, none of them offered any refutation by Kabalistic standards.
The meaning of the series of numbers still was not decrypted. One clue might be that it is obvious the digit "8" was used in those series an unusual number of times. The number "8," or "888," is connected with the name of Jesus Christ in the Jewish Kabala. The czar as a sacrifice is compared in his purity to Christ.
Performance of a ritual cult in Jewish occult sciences demands also the presence of a Jewish minister of religion (a priest) and the cremation of the body of the sacrificed after a ritual murder is committed. The mysterious arrival of "a Jew with a jet-black beard" with Red Army men from Moscow to the Ipatiev House in the middle of July 1918, might be evidence in favor of a presence of such a minister while the slaughter of the prisoners took place. The burning of the bodies after the murder can affirm the assumption of a ritual nature of the Romanovs' elimination.

"The physical destruction of the Romanovs symbolized the definitive decline of the old Christian state. God, czar and the Russian people were a spiritual triune unity of the Russian state. "

Why would the atheistic Jewish Bolsheviks carry out a ritual murder of the czar, his family, their dog and their servants? There are many points of view, pro and con, regarding the possible ritual nature of the Romanovs' slaughter.
Even if the speculation is true, "those for whom it is absolutely no advantage to reveal the secret, will undertake any possible measures that are in their power for invalidation and mockery" of the decryption results provided by Skaryatin.


The Romanovs' murder has a deep and tragic meaning for the Russian people. Historian Ivor Benson characterized the killing of the Romanov family as a symbol of the tragic fate of Russia. The physical destruction of the Romanovs symbolized the definitive decline of the old Christian state. God, czar and the Russian people were the triumverate of the Russian state. They were three interdependent pillars of Russia's existence. Destruction of one of those pillars led to the decay of the rest and, as a result to the Russian state's decay. Even before Nicholas II became the Russian monarch, the country suffered some spiritual decadence. The czar was killed in 1918, and it was then the Bolshevik henchmen began the extensive extermination of the Russian people.
The czar's murder was necessary for Bolsheviks. The desecration of the last Romanov dynasty members showed that no moral boundaries were left. After the murder every bloody blasphemous deed was possible for revolutionaries and, moreover, they were justified by "revolutionary necessity." All the doors were open for the plunder of the vast material values of Russia, profanation of its spiritual values and excessive extermination of Russian people. [Refer to History's Greatest Heist. See sidebar page 57 for more about book.-TBR Ed.]
A few weeks after the Ekaterinburg massacre at the Ipatiev house, the newspaper of the fledgling Red Army declared: "Without mercy, without sparing, we will kill our enemies by the scores of hundreds, let them be thousands, let them drown themselves in their own blood. For the blood of Lenin and Uritsky [Moisei Solomonovich Uritsky was a Bolshevik revolutionary leader in Russia.-Ed.] let there be floods of blood of the bourgeoisie -- more blood, as much as possible."

"The sinister anti-Russian power succeeded in destruction of the natural leadership, the aristocracy and the intelligentsia of the Russian people. The old Russia ceased to exist."

The "enemy" was anybody who had even the smallest disagreement with Bolsheviks. More importantly, if you were part of the aristocracy you were automatically an enemy. If you were a non-Jewish small businessman or successful peasant you were an enemy. Anybody could be announced "an enemy of the people" if he decided to hide a scant supply of food to feed his family instead of giving it all to the Bolsheviks. The Bolshevik victims are enumerated in the millions. The sinister anti-Russian power succeeded in the destruction of the natural leadership, the aristocracy and the intelligentsia of the Russian people. The old Russia ceased to exist.
Concealment of the identity and motivation of the Romanovs murder protected the forces who committed it. Today modem authorities use the murder's ambiguity to their political advantages as well.

Nine remains of the Romanov family were officially found in 1991. National and foreign genetic experts established the identity of the remains. And alleged Romanov remains were buried in the Petropavlovsk fortress (St. Petersburg) in 1998. Many people, including leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church, question the verity of the DNA examination results. For this reason, heads of the Russian Orthodox Church did not participate in the burial procession in 1998.
In 1981 the members of the Romanov family killed in Ekaterinburg were canonized as saints and regal passion bearers by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. The Russian Orthodox Church [in Russia] consecrated the Romanovs as saints in 2000. However, the authenticity of the Romanovs' remains is very important for spiritual reasons. In Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic tradition, the saintly bodies are bearers of God-sent powers. Believers can receive blessings through the remains of saints.
Inevitably, the burial was presented as a final solution to the 1918 tragedy. It was supposed to establish historical clarity upon the death of Romanovs.
By the way, it is ironic that the men responsible for remains identification and the burial processes were appointed Russian politician Boris Nemtsov and his assistant Victor Aksyutchits, who are both Jewish. The chronicler of the Romanovs' remains was the popular writer of Russian history, Edward Radzinsky.
In July 2007 it was formally announced that the alleged remains of Czarevitch Alexei and Grand Duchess Maria were found and identified near Ekaterinburg.
Early December 2009 the city of Moscow announced the termination of the investigation on the Romanov family murder. The decree of the Russian Federation Supreme Court found that the czar's family was executed as victims of political regime and it was not a criminal offense. Thus, the Romanovs fell victims of cruel revolutionary times.
The murderers' names (and nationalities) are well known. Russian streets, squares, subway stations and even whole regions still carry the names of those
who killed the Romanovs in 19l8 -- for instance, Leninsky Prospect in Moscow. Russia's state federal territories include "Sverdlovskaya oblast'" (Sverdlov region). Moscow has a subway stations named "Voikovskaya" (in Voikov's memory). Despite the multiple public protests and claims against it, the modem Moscow government still left the name of the subway station unchanged.
That heinous crime against the Romanovs and their servants hit Russia and its people in the very heart.
