While working on #Romanovs100, the team found several photos partially colored by Anastasia.

... And that's how I had the incredible opportunity to finish the work the Grand Duchess started over 100 years ago.

This isn't the collab you were expecting!

Anastasia loved to "colorize" the family albums.

I knew I had a special reason to like her so much.
Maybe I'll learn a thing or two from her. ;)
I'm adding to my resume: worked with Anastasia Romanov.
All the photographs are available here: romanovs100.com/15/

”Descobri a colorização de fotos em 2015. Sempre me fascinou a ideia de trazer para uma realidade mais próxima os momentos e pessoas que moldaram o mundo.
O amor pela história me acompanha desde criança. Entendi desde o início que juntar minhas maiores paixões e transformá-las naquilo que viria a ser a minha profissão era um privilégio, e sempre atribuí à esse entendimento a “obsessão” que se desenvolveu em mim.
A ansiedade para compreender as técnicas, as incontáveis horas que passava estudando, o perfeccionismo que sempre persegui, a inquietação para produzir trabalhos cada vez melhores....

Todo o esforço valeu a pena e aos poucos veio o reconhecimento; primeiro internacional...

Mata Hari was executed by a firing squad #OnThisDay in 1917.

The military tribunal deliberated for less than 45 minutes before returning a guilty verdict. "It's impossible, it's impossible," Mata Hari exclaimed, upon hearing the decision.

"Harlot, yes. But traitor, never!"
At the time of her execution, she was 41.

#OnThisDay in 1943, prisoners at Sobibor covertly assassinate most of the on-duty SS officers and then stage a mass breakout.

"Our day has come. Most of the Germans are dead. Let's die with honor. Remember, if anyone survives, he must tell the world what has happened here!"
Dutch historian and Sobibor survivor Jules Schelvis estimates that 158 inmates perished in the Sobibor revolt, killed by the guards or in the minefield surrounding the camp. A further 107 were killed either by the SS, Wehrmacht, or Orpo police units pursuing the escapees.
Some 53 insurgents died of other causes between the day of the revolt and 8 May 1945. There were 58 known survivors, 48 male and 10 female.
