Containing two related short stories, this collection hauntingly recounts one woman's experiences in a German concentration camp, and the manner in which they later affect her. In the story The Shawl, Rosa manages to hide her daughter from the Nazi's in the concentration camp. Before long, however, tragedy strikes. The story entitled Rosa picks up the title character's life thirty years later, as she is trying to make a new life for herself in the United States.

Elie Wiesel?s ?Night? is a perennial leader in Holocaust literature. I recommend ?The Shawl? as an adjunct, for it takes the reader into the minds of the survivors long after the war and tells the story from a woman?s point of view. In contrast to Wiesel, who exposes the horrible acts of the Nazi Germans and the feelings of the victims, Ozick?s symbolism requires more time to decipher, but the book is short like ?Night? and within reach.
