17th July 2018 will mark a hundred years since the last Imperial Family of Russia were executed in the House of Special Purpose, The Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg. The Russian Orthodox Church is preparing itself to mark the centenary of this tragic and gruesome act by honouring the memory of the family and  – hopefully – laying their remains to rest together. A cousin of the Romanovs, Princess Olga Romanoff talks movingly in this video for the BBC’s Witness about the murder of the family:
