Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bernhard Heiliger (11 November 1915, Stettin - 25 October 1995, Berlin) was a German artist. He was considered "West Germany's foremost sculptor," and his large public artworks are a prominent presence in many German cities, especially Berlin. Heiliger began his artistic education with an apprenticeship as a stone carver and a course of study at the Stettiner Werkschule f r Gestaltende Arbeiten from 1933-36 under Kurt Schwerdtfeger, who had been a student of the Bauhaus. After this he attended the Staatlichen Hochschule f r bildende K nste (National College of Visual Arts) in 1938, where he studied under Arno Breker. In 1941 he was drafted into the army and served as a radio operator on the Eastern Front for two years, before he received an exemption from military service through the intervention of Breker. Despite this he was drafted again in 1944, after which he fled as a deserter through northern Germany.
