    kind of happiness that belonged only at a very small number of lucky people…Russian (Soviet Union) people have suffered too much for this and suffered too much to conquer something better that later they have lost…

    Nicholas II is third from the right in the first picture, kneeling. His second oldest daughter, Tatiana is next to him.
    He also appears to be on the balcony in the last two pictures (4th page) with his four daughters, Anastasia, Marie, Tatiana, and Olga.
