They got a bit of Germany in 1918[edit]

It is on the map in the 'klapedia' ( Memel) revolt article. Looks like the new state got some of Silesia. So what was this province called, and why did they get it? It went back in 1938 to Germany along with the much larger Sudetenland  ; it is not clear if it was returned in 1945 along with the Sudetenland. More info needed.

Presidents between 1948 and 1989[edit]

I have seen this pages and I find out the list of presidents of us ex-republik is incomplete. There are not in the list Klement Gotvald, Antonín Zápotocký, Antonín Novotný, Ludvík Svoboda and Gustáv Husák. I have discover, that here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Presidents_of_Czechoslovakia its the list OK. Can anybody correct it here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.231.33.73 (talk) 11:49, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Territory from Germany[edit]

The territory that Czecholovakia got from Germany in the aftermath of WWI had nothing to do with Memel. In 1920 Czechoslovakia got the Hlučín Region from Germany. See the Wikipedia article on the town and region.

I've also tidied up the English in the section on "Origins" and replaced a reference to Middle-Europe by Central Europe, also making it clear that Palacký wanted to protect the Slavic speaking peoples of the region - not simply everyone in Central Europe. Norvo (talk) 23:13, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

"Slovakia"[edit]

The "After 1989" Section says the country divided into the Czech Republic and the "Slovak Republic". Isn't "Slovakia" the more common use in English? I rarely hear anyone refer to Slovakia as the "Slovak Republic". Consensus? (Before I alter it and bring a firestorm of protest) Foreignshore (talk) 15:14, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

Every country (or almost every country!) has a short name and a long name. "Slovakia" is the short name and "Slovak Republic" is the long name of the same country. To say that "Slovakia" is more common is like to say that, just because somebody is called "Peter" much more often than "Peter Novák", their name shouldn't be "Peter Novák". --217.155.37.242 (talk) 12:39, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
