Hermann Ethe (1844-1917)

Hermann Ethe (1844 -- 1917)

A large mob of Aberystwyth inhabitants gathered here in October 
1914 to drive Professor Hermann Ethe from the town because of his 
German nationality. Ethe left the following day, never to return to his 
home in Caradog Road or to his work at Aberystwyth University. 
He died in Bristol in 1917. 
This plaque is place by Aberystwyth Town Council in the hope 
that nobody will experience such persecution in our town again.
