It is possible that this Richter on the Bismarck was confused with another brother in the Kriegsmarine, who served on a merchant raider - also sunk. So, he may nto be one of the survivors.

I am a British author who has written a book on Liberia which is about to be translated into German. The book tells the story of a journey I made through the West African nation along a route used in 1935 by the British author, Graham Greene. Back in 1935 Greene met a young German doctor working upcountry in Liberia at a place called Bolahun. Greene does not name the medic but from other sources I have established the doctor's surname was Kruger/Krueger. Another source mentioned that the young doctor from Bolahun perished on the Bismarck and I wanted to check a couple of things.
First, what is the first name of the medical Kruger listed as one of the ship fatalities? Is is Joachim or Hans-Joachim?
Second, do you have any other confirmation that the medical Kruger listed as a ship fatality on the Bismarck was the one referred to by Greene, in other words is there any record to suggest he worked in Liberia in 1935?
With thanks for even considering this rather peculiar request
