On September 7, 2018 at 17:00 within the scientific and educational seminar of the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue there will be a lecture by the doctor of historical sciences, professor of RSUH Boris Lvovich Havkin on the topic "Attempts to Save the Tsar's family: German Trace".
In the year of the 100th anniversary of the events of July 17, 1918 - the execution of Emperor Nicholas II and his family, the question of the fate of the tsar who renounced the throne on March 2, 1917, and the possibilities of preserving the lives of the former monarch and members of the royal family becomes topical. In this connection, the so-called "German trace" - the attempts of Kaiser Germany save the former Russian emperor and his family (these attempts were mentioned in Russian and German historical sources and literarute of 1917-1918) - attracts our attention.
