So the big picture is that a US professor threw a temper tantrum at a German airport and now faces consequences.
When you are in a foreign country and the security police at an airport confiscate a personal produce that you brought with you , deal with it.
Don't be a spoiled brat
Funny part is most hotels supply shampoo conditioner and deoderant knowing it's a pain to get these through security. So she argued with them over something her hotel would replace.
And liquids include aerosols, gels, creams and pastes. So deoderant counts and has to be below 3.4 ozs or 100 ml.

Germany is still very sensitive to anything related to nazis.
Except when they sometimes act like Nazis, which it is now very convenient that their laws shield them from taunts and condemnations.
Exactly what does a Nazi act like?

Her article at Huffpost makes her story even less credible.
Way tooooo much detail, very much like a child uses when they get caught.
Nazi haircut guy, gone by the time she needed them to prove her case. Yeah sure.
I think it's easy to see what she is truly like. My sympathies to those at the airport who had to deal with someone like that.

I do not think I can go to Berlin also for similar reasons.
Myself and a pal were very very drunk in this bar and the little round barman came over shouting at us in German and he wanted us to leave because we had drank too much. I explained that we would finish and leave and he went all red in the face shouting "nein nein nein" pointing to the door so I stood up shouted "okay mein furrer" and goose stepped out that didn't go down well with the locals so we ran away.
Blooming bombed my chippy as me grandad used to say .
