Description of the Ganina yama

Ganina yama or Hole of Ganya is the resting place of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II with his wife Alexandra, son Alexi and daughters Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia. All were executed on 17 July 1918 in Yekaterinburg. Their bodies were burned and then buried here on a site of an abandoned mine. White Guard (anti- Bolshevik army) captured the city and its surroundings shortly thereafter, but special commission that was launched failed to retrieve or find the location of the burial.
