Anti-Semitic placards appeared at a demonstration in St. Petersburg, Russia, where several hundred monarchists and conservative members of the Russian Orthodox Church rallied in opposition to the burial of the remains of Czar Nicholas II, his family and servants. The burial, slated for Friday in the city’s St. Peter and Paul Cathedral, is expected to be accompanied by renewed accusations of a Jewish plot to murder Russia’s last czar.
