A Pipel was a young or adolescent boy (perhaps 12-15) who was 'favoured' by an SS man and had to - well - go for 'long walks in the woods' with him. One of the only two known survivors from Chelmno was a Pipel. Sometimes it really was a matter of life or death.

How many prisoners were in Chelmno?

I don't know how many but I know that at least 153,000 people were killed in Chelmno.___Chelmno the first Nazi extermination camp ('killing facility') and the aim was to kill the new arrivals within 24-48 hours of arrival. It did not have a permament population of prisoners, apart from a small group that had to dig graves in a nearby forest and bury the dead. It was not a camp in any conventional sense. The estimated death toll was - as stated above - 153,000 and the were only two (!) known survivors. One of these was a 'pipel'.

What does Elie Wiesel reactions suggest about how he is changing?

if you read a few pages before, Wiesel once stated that he found "the soup excellent one evening" after witnessing some hangings of adult prisoners. You see, he did not care that they were hung. They were adults. They committed a crime and thus had to be punished. Because they were adults, they presumbly lived their lives. Now let's look at the pipel...Keep in mind that the pipel was a young boy. It's a heinous sight as it is to see a young child killed before a person's eyes. When Wiesel saw him die, he felt bad and sorrowful. How can a child commit a crime and be punished severely? Here is a quote that may explain why Wiesel wrote that statement:"To hang a young boy in front of thousands of spectators was no light matter. The head of the camp read the verdict. All eyes were on the child. He was lividly pale, almost calm, biting his lips. The gallows threw its shadow over him".So you see, Wiesel felt horribly bad that a child died for something he did not understand and perhaps did not commit. The soup, which once tasted excellent, now "tasted of corpses" because Wiesel's mind was filled with guilt and remorse.
