Contrary to popular belief, going back to your home country indeed does not make you lose your refugee status. Not in Germany at least. Unluckily, as I personally have to say, with all respect to your personal loss

The BAMF recently (4 months ago) reported that people with refugee status going back on visits to their home lands is a phenomenon that is not at all unusual, and there is still no legal procedure for this. They explicitly stated that while they might revoke someone's individual status (probably if the trip is for fighting in war, for going to a terror training camp or such a thing?), going back to one's home country as such is generally not a reason.

[need flame resistant clothes onwards]
For me, as someone whose tax money (of which I pay a lot) is being burnt in that context, this is pretty much a WTF situation. Note that I'm not inherently negative towards refugees. However, the way this has been addressed is all in all an unacceptable situation. Consider what it looks like for those people who must bear the load.
Thousands (well, millions) come and shout "help me, gimme gimme", more than half of them are very obviously not even from places where anyone is in danger (many even come from countries that advertize that we go there on holiday!). But of course, thanks to an all-through socialist state, everybody gets shelter nevertheless, money, free everything -- deserved or not. At the same time, our state is unable to provide a sufficient retirement pay. And then, again, thousands of those same people who are in dire danger go back visiting their dangerous home countries, which are so terrible that they had to flee from there. Wait a moment, what?
Bear with me if I'm spitting fire and brimstone right now, but maybe you can understand my issue. Again, all respect for your loss, this is not about you but about the general situation, which is not handled well.

Either someone is pursued and in danger, then it's clear that this person shall have refugee status and that this person gets every help. No doubt about that. But in that case, there is no way you could go back to your home country for a visit. These are just mutually exclusive.
Or, someone isn't in danger and not pursued at all in the first place, well, then you need to apply for (and be granted) a visa, or you're an illegal alien.

But, as it stands, that's not the case (and it's unlikely to change during the next 4 years, it seems like the next government, if there is one, will be even more left-leaning than the last one).
