Sorry, it's _ojczyzna_ in Polish. It means 'fatherland', and translates
all three Russian synonyms. My desktop dictionary (about 50,000 entries)
gives no other Polish word for this concept (except a collocation _kraj
rodzinny_ 'native country').
So I'm finally confused about Polish as a 'motherland' language...
