      That reflects what Slovakia was really called then, Helene. Each of
      the 4 administrative units of the country (Subcarpathian Rus,
      Slovakia, Moravia+Upper Silesia, Bohemia) was called a _zem_,
      "country," between World War I and World War II. That was the
      official term just like _state_ is the official term for the
      administrative units of the US.
