Helen Rappaport (1947) is a writer and former actress whose work focuses on the history of Victorian Britain and revolutionary Russia. She has written books on the last years of the Romanov dynasty as well as on Lenin and Stalin. Her book Ekaterinburg: The Last Days of the Romanovs (2009) describes the last days of the Tsar family in the Ipatiev House. Four Sisters (2014) also focuses on the Romanovs, the daughters of Nicholas II, trying to shed light on the kind of people they were. Caught in the Revolution: Petrograd 1917 (2016) takes a look at the outbreak of the 1917 February Revolution and observes the pivotal events in Petrograd through the eyes of a foreigner. Rappaport’s interests go beyond Russia of the 1910s; among other subjects, she has written about the role of women in history (No Place for Ladies: The Untold Story of Women in the Crimean War, 2007) and the history of photography. She has also translated plays by Anton Chekhov into English. Helen Rappaport will talk to the British crime writer and historian Jason Goodwin.
