For years Pierre Gilliard was the teacher of Tsar Nicholas the second's children. The Swiss was also a hobby photographer and took snapshots of the last Russian tsar's family going about their daily life. The pictures are on show at the national historical museum in Moscow until September 28, 2009. (SF/swissinfo)
