Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The city of Lvov in southeastern Poland was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1939, under the terms of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact of August 1939. There were over 200,000 Jews in Lvov in September 1939, many of whom were refugees from German-occupied Poland. The Germans subsequently occupied Lvov after the invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941.
