The Timbuktu, Mali's Hero of Culture

The Librarian Who Saved Timbuktu’s Cultural Treasures From al Qaeda

A middle-aged book collector in Mali helped keep the fabled city’s libraries, books and manuscripts safe from occupying jihadists. A true hero.

Thanking Joshua Hammer and Wall Street Journal... and Melody Fahey.
