Fifty Years Since the Death of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia

Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna passed away on November 24, 1960.

Her life was immortalized by Ian Vorrres in his excellent book, The Last Grand Duchess. Last year Olga's great-grandson, Paul Kulikovsky, with the cooperation of two friends, Karen Roth-Nichols and Sue Woolmans, wrote a very interesting book based on the Grand Duchess's diaries.

Following is a link to an interesting piece authored by Canadian bookseller, Paul Gilbert. I very much enjoyed the piece, which was quite well done.
