 Military - Eastern Slovakia
In the treaty, it was specified that all archive records belonging to the new nation of Czechoslovakia be repatriated.
Military records from 1918 onward were held by the Successor nations of Czechoslovakia first republic (1918-1939), Slovakia first republic (1939-1944), Czechoslovakia second republic (1945-1993) and Slovakia (1993 to present.) Since the archive system did not substantively change during these periods, these records remained intact and in-place.
It appears that the archives were not properly funded to properly split the records in 1993 when Czechoslovakia was split into the Czech and Slovak Republics.
