Abstract: The Second World War caused parts of the Lithuanian and Polish nations to be forcibly dispersed throughout the world. One of the conferences that determined the world‘s geopolitical situation after the war was held in Yalta in 1945. At this conference the post-war borders of Poland were agreed upon. These agreements directly affected the Lithuanian and Polish diasporas in the West. In 1984 and 1985, in preparation for Yalta‘s 40th anniversary, the Polish diaspora took steps to demand that representatives of the U. S. government declare these Yalta agreements to be invalid. But the Lithuanian émigré community saw these Polish diaspora efforts as threatening the territorial integrity of a future Lithuanian state. Representatives of the Lithuanian-American Community and the World Lithuanian Community took steps in the opposite direction. On the basis mainly of archival sources maintained by Vytautas Magnus University‘s Diaspora Institute, this article discusses how the Lithuanian émigré community tried to prevent the annulment of Yalta agreements concerning the eastern boundary of Poland, what the reasons for these efforts were, and how the Lithuanians cooperated with representatives of neighboring nations
