Heck was particularly happy to hear Hitler proclaim how the German youths would one day rule the world, as he proceeded to proclaim Germany’s renaissance from the ashes of the First World War defeat. During this time, Heck was already an active member of the Jungvolk, a junior division of the so-called Hitler youth.
