As much as we all hate it, invasive TSA body searches are now the norm at American airports. An 84-year-old Holocaust survivor recently complained that agents forced her to endure a “demeaning” body search.
“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,” Eva Mozes Kor tweeted.
Kor and her twin sister survived being brutalized and subjected to inhumane treatments by Nazi monster doctor Josef Mengele.
It’s disturbing that the TSA’s methods are so unprofessional, especially regarding a Holocause survivor.
“TSA is committed to ensuring the security of travelers, while treating all with dignity and respect,” Transportation Security Administration spokesman Matt Leas said Monday.
The agency reached out to Kor because her complaint went viral. A lot of travelers have complained about the rough treatment they’ve received at the hands of badly-trained agents.
“I have been contacted by the TSA to help me and they are working with me to solve this problem,” she tweeted.
Kor has been a renowned lecturer for decades. A documentary focusing on her life, called Eva, is set to be released in April.
Kor and her twin sister Miriam survived Auschwitz in part because Dr. Mengele was fixated on twins. He forced the sisters to undergo multiple sickening experiments. His obsession with them kept them out of the gas chamber.
Mengele experimented on 1,500 sets of twins. It’s estimated that only 250 people survived.
Kor’s parents and older sister died at Auschwitz.
“I forgave all the Nazis who were involved in the assassination of my family. For my forgiveness has set me free,” Kor once said.
