In 1897, Robert Baden-Powell (Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell) appeared in the role of Wun-hi in Simla (Shimla), India. Two years later, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov was present at its premiere in the Russian resort town of Yalta and mentions the show as a backdrop to the climatic scene in one of his best-known stories, "The Lady with the Dog (The Lady with the Dog (short story))" (1899).

In 1993, being interviewed by Theo Uittenbogaard in the TV documentary ''GOLD lost in Siberia'', he remembered that he was released from exile temporarily and flown in to Yalta for a few hours, because Winston Churchill, being unaware of Kozin's forced exile, had asked Stalin for the famous singer Vadim Kozin to perform, during a break in the Yalta Conference, held February 4–11, 1945. First World War The outbreak of World War I in 1914 changed Bortkiewicz's life – being a Russian, he was initially under house arrest and later forced to leave Germany. He returned to Kharkov, where he established himself as a music teacher, while at the same time giving concerts. The end of the war saw the beginning of the Russian Revolution (Russian Revolution (1917)), which forced the composer and his family to flee the family estate at Artëmovka owing to occupation by the communists. In June 1919 the communists fled in the wake of the White Army and Bortkiewicz was able to return and help to rebuild the family estate, which had been completely plundered. This, however, was short-lived and whilst on a trip to Yalta with his wife, the fall of Kharkov to the Red Army meant that his family could not return to Artëmovka. With the area now surrounded by the Red Army, the composer watched his mother and the husband of his sister, Vera, fall ill with typhus, both dying in the chaos at Novorossiysk. Bortkiewicz sought to escape from Yalta and succeeded in obtaining passage on the steamer "Konstantin" which brought them safe, but penniless, to Constantinople (Istanbul) in November 1919. Second World War As with the First World War (World War I), she also depicted the Second World War (World War II) in various ways. She painted funning pictures showing the arrival of allied troops in France, a dinner with allied leaders at Yalta, and a mass (Mass (Catholic Church)) after the war ended in remembrance of the war. Her 1941 painting, ''Church Interior'' shows a scene in a church where men are mostly absent, having gone off to the war. A later church scene, ''Thanksgiving Service'', shows a church with the British Union Jack and the Red Ensign in the background, a celebration of the victory in the war after it had finished. Several of her other paintings show large British flags, reflecting not only her own British heritage and patriotism, but also the fact that many Australians still thought of themselves as being part of the British Empire at this time. During the war she served as a warden (ARP warden), which meant she was in charge of getting people out of the houses in Kur-ring-gai Avenue if there was any trouble. She depicted a meeting of wardens in the painting ''Wardens' Meeting'', 1943, which shows a line of people sitting on chairs, looking solemn and possibly chatting quietly. She painted ''Dawn landing'', 1944 which shows troops and a tank disembarking off a ship after the Allied landings in France. An event which marked the beginning of the end of the Nazi occupation of Europe, it was unusual for her to paint a scene of something not directly in front of her. Similarly seeming somewhat at odds with the rest of her work, is the painting of ''Signing'' 1945, to depict the signing of the peace treaty at Yalta, which shows seated figures who are vaguely recognisable as the three allied world leaders. This event must have been very important for her to paint it when she almost always painted scenes from in front of her, rather than a scene of people on the other side of the world. She would probably have been relieved that the war was nearly over and was to continue painting for the rest of her life. She was a small lady, only
