HISTORY. The Czechoslovak State came into existence on 28 Oct. 1918, when the Czech Národní výbor (National Committee) took over the government of the Czech lands upon the dissolution of Austria—Hungary. Two days later the Slovak National Council manifested desire to unite politically with the Czechs. On 14 Nov. 1918 the first Czechoslovak National Assembly declared the Czechoslovak State to be a republic with T. G. Masaryk as President (1918–35).
