The Shawl by Cynthia Ozick

Probably closer to a short story than a book, it's only about 60-70 pages long, but it's a pretty good story about a traumatized holocaust survivor's inability to assimilate into society once she's moved to America with her niece, after being in a concentration camp and having her child killed before her eyes (in a kind of epic way).
