[The Promised Hereafter] Gabriel Halo


Digital reproduction of the Soviet monument named after Vitya Cherevichkin. Who is this boy and why do the residents of Rostov city keep his memory?

Even before the war, Vitya Cherevichkin, like many of his peers, loved to chase pigeons. The family had relatives in Bataysk city, and pigeons, instead of postmen. The young scout wrote a note with important messages, tied it to the foot of a red pigeon and threw his pet up: – Fly to Bataysk!..

Those were the days when there were fierce battles with fascists on the banks of the Lower Don river. The enemy was rushing to Rostov, and he managed to occupy the city. Soon Vitya found out that large fascist formations were concentrated in the area of the Krasny Aksai plant. Vitya decided to establish contact with the Soviet troops at all costs. They were standing in Bataysk, on the other side of the Don.

Vitya’s pigeon flew to Bataysk. Here he was noticed, and the note was handed over to the headquarters of the Soviet troops.

When the Soviet troops returned to Rostov, the young Leninist was buried with military honors in a mass soldier’s grave.
