Could Anastasia have survived? Over a century has passed since Tsar Nicholas II, family and retinue were said to have been executed by Cheka forces in the city of Yekaterinburg in the Russian Urals. Historians, theologians, revered mavens of “ Romanovia,” all reiterate sacrosanct versions of the event, immortalized in writing, stage and film depictions. However, the Russian Orthodox Church still hedges, at the time of this writing, about giving a definitive declaration of whose bones they possess and how history should be written. Persistent rumors that Anastasia, perhaps with Alexei, had survived, seem to fit the standard of Occam’ s Razor. It is the easiest, even if the most rejected, most vilified, and most unfathomable answer. “ Evgenia Smetisko” defies denial. Mr. Robert “ Bob” Schmitt, an early founder of visual face recognition (VFR), announced after 2D/3D analyses, “ Anastasia and she are obviously the same woman.” The reader will be intrigued to learn about the author’ s journey to uncover “ Smetisko’ s” identity, and enlightened to read her own memoirs included in this book.
