    Nataliia Polonska-Vasylenko (born 1884, Kharkiv (Ukraine) – died 1973, Dornstadt, near Ulm, West Germany) was one of the foremost Ukrainian historians of the 20th century. As the tide of the war turned against the Germans she fled west first to Lviv then to Prague, and finally to Bavaria. She was a Professor at the Ukrainian Free University in Prague (1944–45) and moved together with this institution to Munich where she continued to teach until her death in 1973. In the 1960s she took an active part in the establishment of the American-Based Ukrainian Historical Association and was its Vice-president from 1965.
