Tatyana Velikotnaya et al.
The authors of these heartrending documents of memory are united by common fates – they were all from the aristocracy, and judging from their photographs they were beautiful. During the First World War they were sisters of mercy, subsequently managed to avoid the red terror, and in 1941 found themselves in the Siege of Leningrad.
