 Axis History Forum :: View topic - Slaughter of Polish professors in Lwow/Lemberg - 1941
It may be that the persons concerned had been allowed to keep their personal property in return for collaborating with the Soviet authorities, either in the administration of the annexed parts of Poland, or in the setting up of a Polish anti-German movement based in East Galicia, or both.

Indeed, it seems to portray it as a joint German-Ukrainian operation, with the Ukrainian nationalists having the task of identifying the persosn to be arrested and executed.
