Eva Mozes Kor Says She Received "Very Demeaning" TSA Body Search
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor says she was the victim of a "very demeaning body search" by TSA Agents in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Kor, 84, tweeted Sunday about her experience:
Another very demeaning body search by the TSA - there has to be some way that at age 84 I can get some clearance by the POWERS of Government from this procedure. As I lecture about surviving Auschwitz I barely survive the TSA body search I detest it. That ruined my experience

The Indiana resident spoke with teachers at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History on Saturday about her experiences at Auschwitz concentration camp. Kor and her twin sister, Miriam, survived the inhumane experimentation of Dr. Josef Mengele and were liberated in January 1945.
Kor said Monday she has been contacted by the TSA and they are working to resolve the issue:
Thank you everybody for caring about me and my stress left from Mengele’s experiments. I have been contacted by the TSA to help me and they are working with me to solve this problem. I fly tomorrow to Los Angeles to lecture this problem will be solved-thank you very much! Eva Kor pic.twitter.com/sSwi0XjZfO
