That's a very cleverly put together quiz. Congratulations - nominated.

I think the only answer you'll get any pushback over is Tesla - you can start a small war in the Balkans over attributing his nationality - which is amazing given the complexity.

PS - I knew it was going to be good once you had the right answer for Dubcek!

Thank you very much! I appreciate it.

Wow, I did not think about the Tesla issue, I hope it won't be that much of a problem. I guess I can emphasize more the fact that I am counting only places of the birth and NOT the nationality, so that no-one would argue.

There are more of this cases in the quiz like Stalin etc.

I think your call on Tesla is right given that you have a consistent policy on linking birthplace to the country it's in as of 2021. Serbs claim him because he was ethnically Serb (the airport in Belgrade is named after him) but he was born in what is now Croatia and was a citizen of Austria-Hungary and then the United States. When I'm in the area I sometimes tease people by saying Tesla was REALLY a Hungarian-American...
