Československá Republika
  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


The Czechoslovak State came into existence on 28 Oct., 1918, when the Czech Národni výbor (National Committee) took over the government of the Czech lands. Two days later the Slovak National Council at Turč. Sv. Martin manifested the desire of the Slovak nation to unite politically with the Czechs for the purpose of forming a single sovereign independent Czechoslovak State. On 14 Nov., 1918, the first Czechoslovak National Assembly met in Prague and formally declared the Czechoslovak State to be a republic with T. G. Masaryk as its first President (1918–35).
