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.

I remember a few years ago watching some series on the Hitler Channel about the Russian Czars. It was several hours long, but I watched the whole thing and learned so much. The most fascinating to me are the people who claim to be Romanov children who survived, especially Anastasia.

Thanks for bringing this up and providing the link, bear.

anytime. this thread kicks my ass, because i'm thrilled so many of you are actually interested in this.

but this hitler channel of yours sounds really interesting...is it part of the same package that includes the history channel?

by the way, melon, i have a question for you or anyone else who knows a lot on the matter.

can you give me a run-down as to several different events that include the number 17? it's been long said that that number was a curse for the romanovs...

This is an interesting subject. I never even heard of it when I was in high school. Thanks for bringing this up Zoom! You learn something new every day.

I'm guessing that's where you got "the curse of the number 17" from.

I got that book on my 12th birthday, and I loved every minute of it.
