Xenia Sokolova

Maybe you wonder who Xenia Sokolova was. Well, she was not some actress, singer or dancer from the past century. She was a very important person…my grandmother. Why here on my blog? She was a beautiful lady, born in 1910 in Bessarabia. She came in Romania during the deportations of Romanians from Bessarabia with her husband (my grandfather) and the two sons, my father and my uncle. Xenia Sokolova had noble origins because of her father. Her family was originally from Sankt Petersburg and, from what I have heard, my great-grandfather, Dmitri Alexeevici Sokolov, had been a hussar in Tsar Nicolai II imperial guard. Well, unfortunately I do not know so much about his life story. Returning to my grandmother…

Xenia Soklova was very elegant and, lucky me, I have some photos with her and that era outfits, photos that are so dear to me.  I hope you will enjoy these beautiful memories.

6 gânduri despre “Xenia Sokolova

    • Multumesc. Mai am ceva subiecte legate de familia Xeniei Sokolova. Insa, din pacate, nu prea multe. Aveam 12 ani cand a murit bunica mea si amintirile legate de ea sunt mai mult de ordin afectiv – relatia nepoata-bunica. Povestile le cunosc de la tata. Stiu ca aveau stramosi ceva conti si cnezi. Familia Sokolov s-a destramat cand unii au plecat in Romania, altii prin America de Sud. Nu am decat poze si ceva corespondenta intre membrii familiei, dar si aceasta a incetat la un moment dat. Bunicii mei au plecat din Basarabia doar cu doua geamantane, cu cei doi copii (tata si unchiul care nu mai sunt in viata) si sub amenintarea unui kalasnikov.
