The ¿Quién fue…? and ¿Qué fue…? series encourage students to learn about important historical figures and to relive history through exciting accounts of important historical events. Short chapters, engaging design and format, interesting facts and anecdotes, helpful full-page sidebars that expand on the narrative, maps and timelines that provide historical context, and illustrations and photographs that support comprehension motivate even the most reluctant readers to learn about historical figures, famous events and landmarks.


                           ¿Quién fue Marie Curie?                                          
    



¿Quién fue Marie Curie? is part of the ¿Quién fue…? series. Born in Warsaw, Poland, on November 7, 1867, Marie Curie was forbidden to attend the male-only University of Warsaw, so she enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris to study physics and mathematics. There she met a professor named Pierre Curie, and the two soon married, forming one of the most famous scientific partnerships in history. Together they discovered two elements and won a Nobel Prize in 1903. (Later Marie won another Nobel award for chemistry in 1911.) She died in Savoy, France, on July 4, 1934, a victim of many years of exposure to toxic radiation.
