Wladyslaw and his family were Jews and he told them that war with Germany is coming to them. Jews were dehumanized by the Germans. For example, they weren’t allowed on the sidewalks, they couldn’t go to parks, and they were beaten if they didn’t have their Jewish stars on them. One evening, Wladyslaw and his family were having dinner and they read on the newspaper that Jews were going to get sent to the ghettos. They all become doleful and packed for the day to come.
1- Elie Wiesel is comparing the soup to the taste of corpses because before they went to get their soup to eat, they watched the hanging of three bodies, two men and a child. They had to watch the light child struggle for life in the noose, watching him for half an hour up close until he died, no one wanted to see a child get hanged at an age like that. I feel that the emotions Elie is trying to communicate with us is extreme sadness and sorrow not only because of the death of the two prisoners, but because of the death of the boy. This quote to me, means that because of what he saw up close and for a half an hour, the 13 year old boy trying to cling to his life in the noose, had left a bad taste in his mouth for the soup. 2- I believe that

We turned away and pretended we were having coughing fits”. In another occasion, as soon as Mike learns about Penn, he insists on bullying him. After Crash says that he used to mess with Penn, but doesn't bother anymore, Mike proclaims, “Well, that's gonna change”.
In the poignant memoir Night, the author Elie Wiesel uses compelling dramatic irony to portray the oblivious and discerning reactions towards the Nazi’s attempt to further dehumanize the Jewish people. On the seventh day of Passover, the German officers start arresting prominent leaders of the Jewish community. Quickly followed by the prohibition of Jews leaving their own residence, owning any sort of valuables and the requirement that all Jews must wear a yellow star. Despite the destitute conditions put upon the Jews in the Sighet ghetto, Elie’s father, Shlomo, tries to reassure the people of his community by advising: “The yellow star? So what?
The gallows, then threw the shadow over the boy. The victims’ necks were placed in the nooses. The adults cried “Long Live Liberty!” (Wiesel 61).The three chairs tipped over and there was complete silence in the camp. Wiesel said, “That night the soup tasted of corpses” (62). I revealed that the Jews had a stronger reaction in the second execution.
When Elie arrives at Auschwitz, “[he] did see this, with [his] own eyes...children thrown into the flames” (Wiesel 32).

Another theme that is consistent in the novel is dehumanization. The SS officers continuously treat the Jews in the concentration camps atrociously. They don 't feed then correctly, they beat or shoot them because they were given the opportunity, and forcing the Jews to work for close to endless hours. This is presented on page 37 and 38. "Not for from us, prisoners were at work.
Elie discusses his journey to Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, along with the sight of flames he saw from the crematorium at his arrival. Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel recited, “Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, that turned my life into one long night seven times sealed” (Wiesel 34).

During the second hanging Elie witnessed three victims being hanged, one of them being a young pipel. After those hangings he stated, “That night, the soup tasted of corpses” (Wiesel 65).
