First Summative

Summative Assignment: Aurore

Aurore Gagnon was a young girl who died on February 12, 1920, under suspicious circumstances. … Her mother died in 1918 and her father, Télesphore Gagnon, a farmer and logger … remarried immediately afterwards. Aurore died two years later, at the age of ten. The coroner’s inquest revealed that she had succumbed to blood poisoning and general exhaustion, the result of the great number of untreated wounds which covered her body. What really happened to Aurore Gagnon? Who was responsible for the mistreatment and abuse that she had clearly suffered? How did this rural family become such a dangerous milieu for this young girl?
