Cibola librarian shares her summer experience with students

CHS library presentation on Holocaust Cibola High School librarian, Amanda Coltman, gave several freshmen World History classes a presentation about her summer trip to Europe, focusing on what she saw and learned about the Holocaust.

Coltman showed pictures of memorial sites, along with information about the areas associated with these sites on Tuesday, November 26 during a presentation that was conducted for multiple class periods in the library.

“The Holocaust is an important piece of history we cannot forget,” Coltman said. “Genocides have taken place after the World War II Holocaust. It's crucial to learn about these historical events so we prevent them from happening again."

Students will be using what they had learned from the presentation, along with other researched information to help them complete a major research paper for their World History class.

For individuals interested in learning more about the Cibola library or other libraries around Yuma Union High School District, Coltman and her fellow librarians recently opened a YUHSD Libraries Instagram page to keep students and faculty updated on contests, new arrivals, and special displays.
