the position of Yakov Yurovsky

an American Harvard University Professor of Polish origin, Richard pipes talking about Yurovsky noted that he was: “before very honest in handling public property, infinitely cruel and quite insightful”.

Perhaps it is these qualities after the execution of the Royal family helped him to occupy high enough posts. When Ekaterinburg fell under the power of “white”, Yurovsky went to Moscow, where he first became a member of the Moscow Cheka, and then was appointed head of the regional Emergency Commission.

After Ekaterinburg returned to the Bolsheviks, Jurowski became the head of the Ural Cheka province. Interestingly, at that time he lived almost opposite the former “house of special regime”, while in the 21st year he was not sent to work Gokhran, which by that time was put all the jewels confiscated from the emigrants, and seized gold and platinum. The objective of Yakov Yurovsky was to get values in “liquid state.”

After the tragic events Nikulin almost immediately left Yekaterinburg with a special mission: from the Ipatiev house that he took all the Royal property in Perm. Since then, his career began to develop rapidly. Many colleagues did not know about the participation of parents in execution of the Royal family, but he did not advertise it much.

In 1919 he began his work in the administrative Department of the Moscow Soviet: the first was responsible for the detention home of Moscow, and from 1920 to 1922 he became head of the famous Moore’s today. I must say that while Sochi three times reduced the number of robberies in the nine-fold decrease in the number of robberies and the number of murders fell by one-third.

Lectures of Peter Ermakov

unlike Nikulin, Ermakov did not hide his involvement in the execution of the Royal family, but even reading about this lecture and had for that promotion from his superiors. In the memories of the guard of the Royal family Strekotin shows exactly Ermakova, as someone who finished off with a bayonet still alive Romanov.

Career Ermakova did not work due to his illiteracy and alcoholism. However, despite this, he, as a member of this important revolutionary events, was trying to find a good place.

at First he worked as an enforcement officer in Omsk, and then in Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg. In 1927 he became an inspector of the Ural prison.
