kalmyk Mongolian Immigrants[edit]

FWIW, the Hersey was one of three ships used to bring the first sizable population of mongolian immigrants to the US. As Displaced Persons at the end of the war, they had no safe ability to return to the east and the economy of Germany could not support them. The US Attorney General issued a memo of opinion that as asian persons born west of the caucausus mountains, they would be deemed caucasians and brought to the US.

FWIW my mother was one of these people
