Хљеб and Крух are both bread, from any kind of flour (wheat, rye, corn). Both words are of ancient Slavic origin кроугъ, хлѣбъ. Difference was that кроугъ was just bread and that хлѣбъ could be both bread and grain (modern Russian хлеба). Ancient Slavs did not know for corn, it is American plan, hich arrived in Europe in XVI century, to us even later. Corn bread is куруза, кукурза, проја.
Then I stand corrected
– from national heroes, to discussion about bread.
