Amanda McBrienAssistant Director of the DNA Learning Center (DNALC), Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
During the Russian Revolution of 1917, Czar Nicholas and his family disappeared. In 1920, a mysterious woman surfaced in Germany claiming to be his youngest daughter, the Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov. In this presentation, Amanda McBrien will talk about this transformative time in Russian history while illustrating how modern science, through the use of forensic evidence and DNA comparisons, helped solve the mystery of what really happened to Anastasia.
