Cherevichkin monument

Витя Черевичкин — 16-летний ростовчанин, убитый фашистами. До сих пор спорят, был ли он настоящим разведчиком, или же просто из мальчишечьей удали и желания помочь освободить родной город от оккупантов решился на смертельно опасный поступок. Но факт остаётся фактом: когда немцы взяли Ростов, они под страхом расстрела приказали всем владельцам голубятен убить птиц. Фашисты боялись, что с помощью почтовых голубей ростовчане будут передавать нашим войскам разведывательную информацию. Но Витя не подчинился приказу и тайно продолжал держать голубей, регулярно выпуская их в полёт. Немцы заметили парящих птиц, и Черевичкина, как пособника Красной Армии, расстреляли. На Нюрнбергском процессе фото убитого мальчика с голубем в руках было представлено в числе документов, обличающих фашизм.
