Wiesel says: “I found the soup excellent that evening” (Wiesel 70) after the first hanging and then “the soup tasted of corpses” (Wiesel 72) the night after the  second hanging. What change thinking does he go through and what that say about the evolution of his character?

Elie is becoming disillusioned with survival. After the hanging of young Pipel Elie begins to loose faith in God and human existence. Everything tastes like death and believing in anything, including God, seems futile.
