My Grandfather in Germany

Hi I am posting this message as for many years I have been searching for my Grandfather. My Grandmothers name was Maria Kolodziejczyk she came from a village called wojcice in Poland and was born in 1921. In 1940 my grandmother was taken from Poland along with her cousin Irena Luczak to a place called Vierden near sittensen in Germany where she worked on a farm for a family called surname Behrens, my Grandmothers cousin worked on the farm next to it for a family called Brunckhorst. Whilst my Grandmother was there she fell pregnant and went back to Poland in 1942 to give birth to my Father (she then went back to Germany to a different place called Hohne in Celle when my father was 3 months old) My Grandmother would never tell my Father who his Father was so after finally finding out where my Grandmother actually was in Germany when she fell pregnant, my parents decided to visit. From the brunckhorst family who were very kind and helpful they were told that my Dads Dad was Serbian and he was called Drago, they also know that a relative of the behrens went to visit Drago in 1967 in former yugoslavia. Unfortunately the Behrens family have no interest in answereing any of our letters and on arrival in Germany it came to my parents attention not to visit that family. Unfortunately nobody else knows anything else, we asked the mayor if he had any registration records etc of a Drago in Vierden working for Behrens at that time but as yet he has come up with nothing. We presume that Drago is the first name, not surname but we are not sure. We have come such a long way and are so close but really do not know what else we can do. It would be so wonderful to find out who he was and any help would be very much appreciated.
Kindest Regards
