the curse of the number 17

today is the anniversary of the most horrible family murder in the entire history of civilization.

early in the wee hours of 7uly 17, 1918, former tsar nicholas romanov along with his family including tsarevich alexei were gunned down by bolsheviks in the ipatiev house in yekaterinaberg, russia.

the murder was as barbaric as any ever documented. sverdlov's son later told historian edvard radzinsky how the group of soldiers stood by the door and fired aimlessly into the room full of fallen aristocrats.

with smoke nearly making it impossible to see, the soldiers entered the room five minutes after the first shot was fired, and began stabbing the remaining victims to death.

or so they thought.

after the bodies were brought outside to a waiting truck, it was said alexei and one of the daughters all of a sudden sat straight up and screamed a blood-curdling plea for help before being stabbed again....but not before completely wrecking the nerves of their muderers.

i encourage you all to read the incredible story of one of the most powerful families in the world become sub7ect to the angry consequences of a people's revolution.

i really can't believe how brutal this place has gotten that you can't even post a thread without people shitting on it, even when you're being serious.

Lemonade Stand isn't for serious threads, if you want to start a serious debate do it in FYM.

Oh I forgot, you don't go into FYM, there are adults there and people who might disagree with you and that scares you.

The Romanov Dynasty is truly quite interesting it is one of many reasons as to why Modern History was my favourite subject at school.
