The MHM is pleased to invite you to, “Holocaust Education and Video Games: A Discussion with Luc Bernard and Mitch Joel” on June 4th at 7pm at 5151 Cote-St-Catherine St. W.

Montreal, May 30, 2024-Holocaust education has never been more important. But how do we continue to teach about the Holocaust in innovative ways that reach young people? We are thrilled to have Luc Bernard give us his invaluable insights into how he’s introduce  Holocaust education into the world of video games.

Bernard most recently created “Voices of the Forgotten,” a virtual Holocaust museum within Fortnite, one of the most widely played video games in the world. He also created, “The Light in the Darkness,” a role-playing game that tells the story of a Jewish family in Nazi-occupied France. Bernard will be in conversation with well known Montrealer Mitch Joel, who is Co-Founder of ThinkersOne and author of Six Pixels of Separation.

This event will allow participants to discover how innovative digital approaches can be used effectively by museums, academics, teachers, and parents when teaching about the Holocaust.

The discussion will take place in English and will be followed by a Q&A. Participants will also have the opportunity to play Bernard’s two games. Tickets are $10 + tax and can be reserved through Jlive: Holocaust Education and Video Games: A Discussion with Luc Bernard | Jlive.
