His experiences in World War I were processed by Franz Heckendorf in expressionistic images. He was trained in Berlin, and created oil paintings, pastels and watercolors of landscapes, still lifes and portraits. In the Third Reich he was considered a “degenerate artist.” Because he helped a Jewish friend to escape, he was imprisoned from 1943 until the end of World War II in the concentration camps Waldshut and Mauthausen. After the war he taught for some time as a professor in Wien (Vienna) and Salzburg, before he painted again in München.
