More than 4,000 slave laborers were burnt alive in their living quarters  or were shot as they attempted to escape from the flames in  Schwabmunchen, southwest of Munich, another Nazi horror camp uncovered  by troops of the Seventh U.S. Army.  The camp was discovered as the 12th  Armored Division forged its way toward the Austrian border. As  spearheads threatened the camp, the German guards found they could not  get the prisoners away before the arrival of the advancing Americans.   Rather than allow the internees to be liberated, the guards set fire to  the crude huts in which the prisoners slept, burning them to death or  shooting any who tried to escape.
