From the article above:

Michael Berenbaum, a Holocaust scholar and consultant to the Skokie museum wrote:At Auschwitz, he found that 44 parallel tracks converged on the camp. The comparable figure for New York's Penn Station was 21 tracks.

Lets look at this statement a little bit closer. Did he say; 44 parallel tracks? Did he forget that there are air photos from Auschwitz?

A friend of mine sent me this air photo:

Maybe the other tracks converge before the actual camp itself?

But the numbskull said 44 parallel tracks. Are there 44 parallel tracks converging on Auschwitz? Where? Hasn't this Berenbaum creep been shotdown here before? I'll check.

I was pretty certain that this Dr. Berenbaum could not have said that, that "parallel tracks" would have been the journalist's words.

So I looked it up, and I read:
And Auschwitz had 44 parallel railroad tracks. I called up Amtrak and asked how many parallel railroad tracks does New York’s Penn Station have. They said 21. It then dawned on me that Auschwitz was chosen precisely because it was at the intersection of all the rail lines. The architectural history of the area showed that if you were looking for a site in Poland in which to situate a gas chamber, Auschwitz was the site that had the requisite infrastructure in place. Again, it’s not just following orders, it is the creativity of people solving hitherto unsolvable and unknown problems. This was not understood at Nuremberg because Nuremberg was a premature and an immature articulation of the crime.

It is ludicrous.

Edit: I see that Beerenbaum assigns this statement to Hilberg:
Instead of sending mobile killers to stationary victims, the victims were made mobile and the killing centers stationary. Railroad trains were the means of transport. “Auschwitz had 44 parallel railroad tracks,” Raul Hilberg wrote, more than twice the number of Pennsylvania Station in New York, which can handle 750,000 passengers on a major holiday weekend. Auschwitz was chosen for its infrastructure and that infrastructure was enhanced by the massive investments of German business in the slave labor complex.

I cannot imagine that Hilberg said that.

But Beerenbaum wrote this in the Encyclopedia Brittanica:
