Default What happened to the Yugoslav Chess Team??

Well, the different alphabets are just a side effect of the Serbs being
Orthodox and the Croats being Catholic.

Just as Austria is Catholic while Germany is Lutheran, or the Slovaks
are Catholic while the Czechs are Protestant.

And of course that's a division that people often fight because of. Even
if they speak the same language and are of the same blood.
