Museum of P.P. Vershigora, Hero of the Soviet Union, the Village of Severinovka

Petr Petrovich Vershigora, a native of the village of Severinovka in the Kamenka district, is known not only in Transdniestria, but also far beyond the borders of the former USSR. Writer, teacher, theater and film director, he went through and survived the Great Patriotic War, serving as a squadron and battalion commander as well as the head of the front-line correspondent brigade. In 1943 he was the leader of the 1st Ukrainian partisan division named after S.A. Kovpak. For performing successful raids and for special merits in the development of the partisan movement in Ukraine, he was awarded the title of the Hero of the Soviet Union. After the war, Piotr Petrovich taught at the Academy of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR and was simultaneously engaged in literary activity. For the book People with a Clear Conscience he won the USSR State Prize. In 1965, on the initiative of the history teacher P.P. Korzhov, in Severinovka school, Vershigora Museum was created, which received a separate building in 1977. The exhibition of the museum reflects Vershigora’s pre-war life and his military career, as well as the deeds of Kovpak division partisans during the Great Patriotic War.
