      The cover page signed by Empress Alexandra of Russia, as “The first diary of my little Alexey. ~ Mom, Tsarskoye Selo, 1916.” Probably, that was Alexandra who presented this diary to her son, as according the traditions in The Romanovs if the members of family might make records then the heir of the crown had to do it every day and in details.

For weeks, the women's only water came from an open pail. Their food--all of it colorless slop--was infested with worms." This is what women had to fight for, so don't tell me feminism is 'irrelevant' to you.
