Lucien Bernard just like the many other gentiles of Paris under Nazi occupation has very little to no empathy for the Jews. Therefore, when a rich industrialist offered him a good chunk of money to set up secret hiding spots for Jews then he was in two minds. He was not sure if he should risk his life for some cause in which he does not believe. Ultimately, he was not able to reject the offer and started designing od the concealed places in a very expert manner. Those secretive places were everywhere such as inside a drainpipe, being a painting, and even within a column. But, one of his secretive places failed horribly and he took that thing personally.
