The term "gubernia" is Russian. At any time when a region is
*legitimately* described as a gubernia, it must have been
governed by pre-revolution Russia. The parallel Polish term
is "wojewodztwo", and this is the term used wherever Poland
was sovereign after WWI.

The word gubernya was used in Yiddish, and continued to be used after
WWI.

Jews in Poland in the inter-war years used the word gubernya to mean
province (wojewodztwo)
