      Just to add a quick note of clarification: these inhabitants were
      nationally Slovak, but ethnically Polish (goral) minority. The native
      dialect here is a Polish dialect, though of course people also spoke
      Slovak and Hungarian and even German (a large German minority to the
      south). This was the cause of the disputes after the breakup of the
      Hungarian empire about whether Slovakia or Poland should be awarded the
      villages in northern Spis and Orava counties. Eventually the disputed
      villages were divided, with Poland getting some and Slovakia getting some.
