This page of links pertains to the Polish city of Lwów, that is a city where for centuries Poles constituted the majority of the city's multiethnic population, yet a minority of the population of the surrounding countryside which was primarily Ruthenian and Ukrainian. The history of the Polish city of Lwów came to an end in 1945 when, following the end of WW2, the city was incorporated into the then Soviet Ukraine, its name changed to Lvov (more recently Lviv) and its Polish population resettled within the new borders of the Polish state, primarily in the city of Wrocław.
