From November 1939, Zdyn lived without his family in Lengede in the so-called “ single home ” on the grounds of the Anna mine and worked as a compulsory mine worker in the Ilseder hut . In September 1944 he did not fill out a form from the military registration office and instead wrote a conscientious objection to military service based on his religion . In November 1944 he was summoned and explained why he refused to do military service. Until then, his citizenship remained open, because Reich Germans had no right to refuse. Thereupon he was arrested on December 8, 1944, indicted and sentenced to death on February 13, 1945 in Hildesheim by the Hanover Special Court. Franz Zdyn was the last Jehovah's Witness to be beheaded with the guillotine on March 9, 1945 in Wolfenbüttel prison .

After completing his training, he did military service in World War I and suffered a nervous breakdown at the front . On his return he married his wife Hermine in 1923 and had two daughters with her. In 1930 he became unemployed and showed behavioral changes that doctors in Hildesheim diagnosed as schizophrenia .
