The rations at each meal consisted on coffee (in the mornings), and thick soup. Every now and again there is a mention of rough bread, some of which is smuggled in by a relative they found in the camp. This is the chapter which mostly deals with all the negatives in the camp. It is very consistent in tone and form in that Wiesel just keeps going and telling his story with not much introspection, but more fact.
