Münich in the Nürnberg Chronichle

Munich, 1285: 180 Jews were burnt to death. 

On encyclopedia.com we read: “On Oct. 12, 1285, in the wake of a blood libel, 180 Jews who had sought refuge in the synagogue were burnt to death. The names of 68 of the victims are listed in the Nuremberg Memorbuch, which dates from 1296.” 

In the Nürnberger Memorbuch, we read: “The burnt of Munchen, 12 [days] in [the month of] MarCheshvan, Friday, 46 to the 6th millennium [5046 AM].” This is followed by a partial list of names.
