ALBUQUERQUE, N.M (AP) -- A Holocaust survivor who lives in Indiana says she was a victim of a "very demeaning body search" by U.S. Transportation Security Administration agents after a visit in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Eva Mozes Kor tweeted on Sunday in Albuquerque that she has to undergo the intrusive body search before boarding a plane and that it ruined her experience following a lecture.
The Terre Haute resident spoke with teachers from around New Mexico at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History on Saturday about suffering through inhumane scientific experiments at the Auschwitz concentration camp as a 10-year-old.
It was unclear if the TSA search in question occurred at Albuquerque International Sunport.
TSA Regional Public Affairs Manager Carrie Harmon did not immediately return an email from The Associated Press.
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
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
