Program Description

This program delves into the mystery of Anastasia, the youngest daughter of the last czar of Russia, who was presumed murdered along with the rest of her family by the Bolsheviks in 1918. Four years later, a young woman who claimed to be the missing princess surfaced in Berlin. Ever since, believers and skeptics have been battling over the truth of her claim -- even after the woman's death in 1984. Thanks to DNA analysis, NOVA solves the 75-year-old mystery.
