Poland did not become an independent country until 1918.  In the 19th-early 20th century it was part of the Russian empire and Derechin was part of the Slonim uezd in the Grodno governorate until 1920.

I don't know specifically about documents from Polish era, but anything prior to that - birth records, census, etc, might be stored in the Grodno or Slonim archives.  The staff there is usually very helpful, perhaps they advise where you can find these documents.
