In chapter four, Wiesel witnessed the executions of two fellow prisoners. After the first execution, Wiesel remarks, "I remember that on that evening, the soup tasted better than ever." At the second execution he then says, "That night, the soup tasted of corpses." Compare these two statements and explain the message Wiesel is trying to send.
(Hint: These statements actually have nothing to do with the taste of the soup!)
