"Eva Brozowsky is on her way back to Bamako. The Malian capital has been her place of work for the last year. The 34-year-old restorer of historical artefacts and specialist in paper is a member of a team of German scientists who are working to save ancient manuscripts from the library in Timbuktu from the ravages of time. The 1,200 year-old manuscripts include works on alchemy, astrology, medicine, the Koran and history. Brozowsky believes this collection is comparable in significance to the contents of all of the libraries in the whole of Germany."
