Open Thread on the 70th Anniversary of the Deportation of the Kalmyks
I know that absolutely nobody will comment here. That is of course a given. But, since there are no other blog posts in English on the Internet dealing with the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Kalmyks I feel that I must at least show that at least one person with no ethnic connection to the group cares about this history. But, the Kalmyks were a politically incorrect people persecuted by a regime that adhered to an ideology that remains very popular in many places including US academia. So I don't expect anybody else to join me in this endeavor.
