(Pavel Trofimovich Morozov). Born Nov. 14, 1918, in the village of Gerasimovka, present-day Tavda Raion, Sverdlovsk Oblast; died there Sept. 3, 1932. Young Pioneer, participant in the struggle against the kulaks during the collectivization of agriculture in the USSR.

Morozov was the son of a poor peasant. He organized and was the chairman of the first Young Pioneers’ detachment in Gerasimovka. The Young Pioneers helped the Communists in the agitation for the creation of a kolkhoz and unmasked the hostile actions of the kulaks. He was brutally murdered by the kulaks. The Gerasimovka and other kolkhozes, schools, and Young Pioneer brigades (druzhiny) have been named after Morozov, and his name was the first to be entered in the Book of Honor of the Lenin All-Union Young Pioneer Organization (Nov. 3, 1955). Monuments in honor of Morozov have been erected in Moscow (1948), Gerasimovka (1954), and Sverdlovsk (1957).
