Not all Poles from the borderlands left for the territories of post-Yalta Poland. Some were stopped by Soviet authorities, while others mindfully elected to remain in territories of the USSR. Among these was the art historian Prof. Mieczysław Gębarowicz (1893–1984), director of the Ossoliński National Institute since 1941, who didn't leave Lviv and maintained the city's remaining cultural materials.
