yes, that was the one that went down in the atlantic, killing 230 people.

maybe you remember, some people said they thought they saw a missile going up toward it before it blew up. there was a big conspiracy theory that the government accidentally took it down, but no one was ever able to prove anything.

ah yes! the missile, i remember hearing all about that.

1997 was still a time where i wasn't really paying a lot of attention to the news, but that much i do recall.

in fact, i always think about that whenever i go to europe...not a good thought. :S

The Romanov family is my favorite to teach. Very interesting. Thanks for the link.

Nicholas and Alexandra is a good film too.

have any of you read the book 'the last tsar'?

it's amazing, even if the author takes a few too many liberties.

Actually, the NTSB/FAA "proved" that there was no missle.

Give me some money...I could "prvoe" anything/everything.

And as for the Tsars...I have actually looked further into the topic because of Zommerang96's posts here and elsewhere.

I thought it was something about people turning 17 but of course it wasn't as I clicked on the thread.

Good bring this up zoomerang. It's something I've never really heard of... but then again, we really didn't touch much on Russian history during my days taking Global/World history classes.

I teach high school social studies, mostly history though. I have all world history classes this year. ( I start again in 1 month. )

It's one of the few topics my kids get interested in.

The movie Nicholas and Alexandra is great. It was made in 1971, I think. My copy is at school. It's available on DVD now too.

Rasputin, Trostsy, Lenin are all in it as well. A history teacher's dream come true video. aka: days I don't have to hear the sound of my own voice.

I vaguely remember watching something last year that resembles that. Does that movie follow them all the way through to where they are burnt? I think we might be thinking about the same one.

You can't help but get into it - it's a really engaging story on so many levels. Mind you our entire Modern History cirriculum was pretty engaging, French Rev, Tsars, WWI, WWII, Cold War. ... those were the days.

yeah, those topics were so much better than terrorism.

terrorism doesn't have that definitive that all other "wars" or "battles" did. terrorism has no country, it's 7ust there - everywhere.

this isn't making sense, i'm going to sleep.

The film ends with the death scene. I can not tell you how much I like this movie. It is long but worth a watch.

I don't get to spend nearly enough time on this stuff b/c I'm forced to cover early river valley civ to present. Ha, ha. I know. I tend to do reader's digest version 1st semester and more in depth reading,/activities 2nd semester. I wish I could teach a modern history course.
