Founder & Executive Director

LUC BERNARD

Luc Bernard is the Founder & Executive Director for Voices of the Forgotten He brings together his creative vision and technical wizardry in a way that maximizes the emotional and educational impact of video games. In over a decade of designing and producing video games across many genres - during which time he has received continuous accolades for his work - Luc has created countless gaming innovations and sold tens of millions of copies of his games.


Luc developed an original - and initially controversial - idea to create a video game that would teach the history of the Holocaust. Knowing the story of his maternal grandmother, who looked after a kindertransport child, he had detailed knowledge of the atrocities of the Holocaust. He also had a growing concern that the impact of the Holocaust was being increasingly minimized, and education about it increasingly ignored.
