of this file was confirmed by the former head of the Russian section of State Robert F. Kelley. He stated: If I wrote Romanov File there, as I obviously did, you can bet there was a Romanov File. One of the most respected newspapers of soviet Russia Zvezda published out a little propaganda the net effect of which was to rebury the Romanovs deeper then ever. But why, if, according to Russian government, Romanov were killed and their graves were undisturbed, Russian government made this extra effort? The explanation is that it came to the government s attention that the Chevers papers were about to be released. The proof of the survival of Royal Family would be embarrassing to Lenin and Trotsky. It would show that the Russian government has constantly been lying about what happened

in the Ipatiev house, and the most of all it will highly incriminate the Orthodox Church, because they were praying for seven undeceived saints . The Chivers papers cover the period from July 10, 1918 until February 17, 1919. The whole operation began on July 10, 1918 when according to the papers, the family was aroused at 2 am and escorted to the truck, which was checked by an engineer and parked outside the door. The extract from the files quotes: No member of the retinue will go with His M and his family, and two have volunteered for the camouflage plan. His M is much disturbed for them and greatly moved by such devoted service. The journey will last about one hour or perhaps a little longer. The road will be clear and guards posted. The curfew does not end until 6 am. It is

clearly shown here that volunteers took Czar s place. Because the guards were severely drunk that night, they could not notice whom they were shooting. It could be anybody who resembled the czar for at least a bit. The successful beginning of the plan was dated July 18, 1918 in the papers and said: July 18.1918 The plan worked well. At the hour of 2 the guard aroused his M and His M aroused her M and Each of the Duchesses. They all walked to the ground floor to meet the waiting guard. The engine started in two turns and the truck was away turning to the right and there its journey started. This message shows us that the escape had a good start. It is also said in the papers that two volunteers were transferred into two corpses, via the guard wretched task . It is said further

that Nicholas and his family were in good condition and the truck engine did not fail. It is the whole book of stories about the cars that were used to transfer the Royal Family over the 1800 miles of Russian primitive roads. The trail of the Romanovs in the Chevers papers ends in Odessa and gets picked up by another document The Lord Hardinge letter . Lord Hardinge was a great favorite of Edward VII and a close confidant of the Royal Family. His letter defines the escape route from Odessa and synchronizes in time and place with the Civers Papers. According to the letter, only four of the seven Romanovs made the trip from Constantinople to Breslau. Alexandra and Alexei were both in delicate health at that time, as well as Anastasia. It can be only guessed that they were left in a

hospital somewhere in Romania or Bulgaria. After July 1918, Romanovs were never officially seen alive again. From the official evidence that has been compiled over the years following their disappearance, it is generally believed that the entire Imperial Family and their servants were murdered by the Bolsheviks. The stories that told of the survival of at least one member of the Imperial family had been heard by the remainder of the Romanovs in Europe. The family had also heard of a woman who called herself Anna Anderson and claimed to be the youngest daughter of Czar Nicholas II. They were skeptical of Anna from the beginning because she was a patient in an insane institute in Germany. The Romanovs sent Madame Tolstoy, a friend of the late Tsarina Alexandra’s, to identify the

young woman. The first thing Madame Tolstoy commented on Anna’s brilliant blue eyes, a color unique to the Russian Royal family. Anna was very ill at the time of the visit and refused to answer any questions about herself, but even so, Madame Tolstoy recommended that someone else go to see the woman, because she resembled the Grand Duchess to a great extent. The next person sent to see Anna was Baroness Sophie Buxhoeveden, who had been the Tsarina’s lady-in-waiting. The family could not have made a worse choice. Years earlier, the Baroness had switched to the Bolshevik s side and betrayed the family and therefore she proclaimed Anna Anderson to be an imposter. Anna was released from the insane institute late in 1922 and stayed with the Kleist family. They secretly invited
