Many of us, looking back on our lives, will identify turning-points; events we see as life-changing and in some cases strong enough to re-direct the course of a life.

When Anwar Mall was asked to offer a course at the 2019 UCT Summer School in the ‘Life-changing biographies’ category, the biography of Marie Curie by her daughter, Eve Curie, immediately came to mind. During his research for the course, he was struck anew by the life of this remarkable woman, who beat all odds and made an enormous contribution to humanity with her scientific discoveries and eventually won two Nobel Prizes.
