Yakov Sverdlov, whose Jewish name was Yankel Solomon, ordered the massacre of Tsar Nicholas II, his family and assistants. For this particular Jewish revolutionary regicide was a cherished dream. Clear evidence of this is to be found in the text of leaflets written by Yakov Sverdlov dated May 19, 1905. This date is the birthday of Nicholas II: “Struck your hour, the last hour of you and all yours! This is a terrible judgement, the revolution is coming!”
All organisers, the accompanying guards and key members of the assassination squad were militants involved in the organisation of the future Communist party (RSDLP). Its genesis was in the Urals at the end of 1905 and the beginning of 1906 when the group was under the direction of Yakov Sverdlov.
Long before the 1917 coup that delivered Tsarist Russia to Western, mostly American corporate interests, Yakov Sverdlov (Yankel Solomon) and a number of major figures of Bolshevism had been exiled and were serving their sentences in Siberia. Yakov Sverdlov was banished to Turukhansk as was bank robber terrorist the dwarfish Joseph Stalin, Julius Martov (Tsederbaum), and Aron Solts. Through the region of Tyumen, Tobolsk and Yekaterinburg passes the Trans-Siberian Railway (Transsib). This network of railways connects Moscow with the Russian Far East and the Sea of Japan. This network delivered the Tsar and his family when they were taken into custody by the Wall Street financed Bolshevik insurgents.
Yakov Sverdlov even in demonic Jewish minds was known to be pathologically sadistic. Such were the gratuitous cruelties inflicted by him that party members already inured to extreme violence were appalled.
Jakov Sverdlov gathered around him the most ruthless elements of the association. On the eve of the 1905 coup attempt Yakov Sverdlov, still in the Urals, formed what was known as The Battle Squad of the People’s Weapons (BONV).
This terrorist group slaughtered police officers and any thought to be sympathetic to the Tsarist system. The group enriched itself through armed raids on banks, post offices, cash desks, trains and shops. “They were desperate murderers” writes E. Hlystalov who describes the group’s leaders as “the frail bespectacled Yakov Sverdlov.”
Philippe (Shaya-Isay Fram) Goloshchekin was personal ambassador of Yakov Sverdlov and he acted in all the group’s important matters. Across the Ural region Sverdlov placed in government positions those he considered loyal to him. These occupied different positions such as Foodstuffs Commissioner, Commissioner of Justice and Commissioner of Supplies; all of local authority office. Soon, the Ural region became Yakov Sverdlov’s personal fiefdom. It was not by chance that the great city of Yekaterinburg during 1924 ~ 1991 bore the name of Sverdlovsk. The street on which was located Ipatiev House where the massacres was carried out was renamed Sverdlov Street. In 1991 this city’s name was returned to its original Yekaterinburg.
Under the protection of the Romanovs, Gunners left Tobolsk on April 26, 1918. On April 30 the train carrying the family arrived in Yekaterinburg. Here, Yakovlev were formally handed the imperial couple and their daughter Maria to the Head of Ural Council A.G. Beloborodov.
On July 16, 1918, the day before the assassination was carried out; the Imperial family were transported to Yekaterinburg. The train consisted of the locomotive and a single passenger car. Passengers included a person dressed in a black robe and a rabbi whose face was hidden. Of special mention was Chairman Ural Regional Soviet Philippe (Isaac-Shaya) Goloshchekin. The rabbi first looked at the basement of the Ipatiev house. There, he traced cabalistic signs on the wall and the inscription, ‘The king sacrificed. The kingdom destroyed.’ During the same day he departed. He did so after appointing the assassin Yankel Yurovsky, the son of Chaim Yurovsky who had been exiled from Ukraine to Siberia after being charged with theft.
In attendance at the bloodbath on July 17 / 18, 1918 was the Yakov Sverdlov and Brigade Commissar Vasily Yakovlev (Konstantin Myachin). Their task was to later remove secretly all remains of the Imperial Russian family. In the immediate aftermath the bodies were mutilated and dismembered before being deposited in a shallow mine. The contents of the mine could be seen from the surface.
Yurovsky personally supervised the execution of the Imperial family. He was responsible for administering the coup de grâce and then searching the bodies. Pyotr Voykov (Pinhus Wainer) took part in the actual shooting and assisting in administration of the coup de grâce. Afterwards, he was delegated to destroy the family’s remains by a combination of dismemberment and the use of sulphuric acid. Scrawled writing was afterwards found on the walls of the room in which the Imperial family was slaughtered. These were translated and transcribed by German-Jewish poet Heinrich Heine (1797-1856). The lines appear on the backdrop wall to the slaughter and near the window in the basement of Ipatiev House.
“Belsatzar ward in selbiger Nacht / Von seinen Knechten umgebracht,” “Belsatzar was, on the same night, killed by his slaves.”
Belshazzar, the Gentile king of Babylon who, in the Old Testament story, saw ‘the writing on the wall’ foretelling his destruction (Daniel 5) and was killed as punishment for his offenses against Israel’s God. In a clever play on the Heine quotation, the unknown writer, almost certainly one of the killers, has substituted Belsatzar for Heine’s spelling Belsazar in order to signal even more clearly his intended symbolism. The Heine inscription described the racial / ethnic nature of the murders: ‘A Gentile king had just been killed as an act of Jewish retribution.’
The destruction of the corpses began the following day and was assisted by Jakov Yurovsky and carried out under the direction of Pyotr Voikov (Pinhus Wainer). Supervision also were Goloshchekin and Beloborodov.
Pyotr Voikov recalled that scene with an involuntary shudder. He said that when this work was completed the dismembered cadavers; human bloody trunks, arms, legs, torso and head were thrown down a forest mine. Upon this dreadful scene of carnage was poured gasoline and sulphuric acid. In a vain attempt to destroy all evidence of the massacre the parts were afterwards burned for two days.
Pyotr Voikov said:
It was a terrible picture. We, the participants of the burning corpses were downright depressed about this nightmare. Even Yurovsky in the end could not resist and said that even those few days and he would have gone mad.” (Besedovsky G. Z. ‘On the Road to Thermidor’ M. 1997. S.111-116).
The site of the carnage and the failed attempts to completely dispose of the family’s bodies was temporarily liberated from the Red Army by the opposing White Armies. Nikolai Sokolov, the investigator appointed by the Commander of the White Armies Admiral Alexander Kolchak, drew the following conclusions:
The corpses were brought to the mine under the cover of darkness in the early morning, July 17, 1918. Clothing was roughly cut (damage is found on buttons, hooks and eyes). The corpses were then chipped and completely destroyed by fire and sulphuric acid. At the end of the operation the bodies were completely incinerated leaving only the melted lead from the bullets from which they had died.
To explain the later finding of jewels Nikolai Sokolov explained that, according to the testimony of the witness Tyegleva, the Grand Duchess secretly sewed jewelery in her clothing. During the burial some of the valuables went unnoticed. The princesses had also secreted gems in their apparel. When the mine shaft was later excavated there was discovered more items of jewelery. From the torn brassieres a rain of pearls and precious stones cascaded. Some jewelery, mostly earrings and pendants lay unnoticed in the surrounding grass. In view of the discovered wealth the executioners and body disposal team worked quickly to finish their work. They did not pay attention to individual items. Witnesses reported the movement of cars and trucks, carts and riders near Ganina Yama 15 km north of Yekaterinburg. This area July 17 to 19, 1918 was cordoned off by Red Guards. Nikolai Sokolov writes that these days also heard grenade explosions.
Nikolai Sokolov managed to find two orders drawn up by Pyotr Voykov on July 17, 1918. The orders were placed with a local drugstore named Russian Society. With each order was the requirement to supply employee Commissariat Zimin with sulphuric acid. The first requirement was of 5lbs with 3lbs more placed in the second jar. In total, Zimin was issued 11lbs of sulphuric acid for which was paid 196 roubles and 50 kopecks. According to Nikolai Sokolov, the sulphuric acid was delivered to the mine on 17 and 18 July. At the mine traces of two large fires were found. Here, dozens of objects have been discovered that were related to the murdered Imperial family. Many items were burned, some were destroyed. Nothing was spared of the Tsar’s family; even their pet dogs were slaughtered.
At this point, the reward for the assassination of the Imperial family posted by Wall Street Jewish banker Jacob Schiff was settled with the Bolsheviks. This German born Jew was later to boast and celebrate the funding of the 1917 Bolshevik coup which overthrew Russia’s legitimate government. Schiff personally offered a substantial reward for the murder of the Russian royal family. This Jewish banker’s investment funded a tyranny which, at the time of its collapse in 1990, is estimated to have directly or indirectly led to loss of life estimated between 70 and 100 million, mostly Christians. Jacob Schiff appears to have achieved the dubious distinction of being the biggest killer in the history of humankind.
Will you say for me to those present at tonight’s meeting how deeply I regret my inability to celebrate with the Friends of Russian Freedom the actual reward of what we hoped for and striven for these long years.” ~ Jacob Schiff, New York bankers, ‘Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Quote: New York Times, March 24. 1917.
The Civil War following the American backed coup was to continue until 1922. Upon the final expulsion of the White Armies corporate America and Europe moved in to plunder the assets of the nation that was once Imperial Russia.
