    North Macedonia has not only changed its name. It is undergoing a landmark overhaul.

    Within six months, it must rename state institutions, rewrite school textbooks and relabel public monuments.

    Critics say this will tamper with its identity. The government says it will help discover it.

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Skopje.
