Herman Ethé (1844 – 1917) Yn y lle hwn ymgasglodd torf niferus o drigolion Aberystwyth ynHydref 1914 I alltudio’r Athro Herman Ethé o’r dref oherwydd ei genedligrwydd Almaenig. Gadawodd Ethé drannoeth, ac ni ddychwelodd i’w gartref yn Ffordd Caradog nac i’w swydd ym Mhrifysgol Aberystwyth. Bu farw ym Mryste ym 1917. Gosodir y gofeb hon gan Gyngor Tref Aberystwyth yn y gobaith na phrofa neb erledigaeth debyg yn ein tref fyth eto A large mob of Aberystwyth inhabitants gathered here in October 1914 to drive Professor Hermann Ethé from the town because of his German nationality. Ethé 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 placed by Aberystwyth Town Council in the hope That nobody will experience such persecution in our town again Hier versammelten sich im Oktober 1914 Einwohner von Aberystwyth mit der Absicht, Professor Hermann Ethé gewaltsam aus der stadt zu vertreiben, weil er Deutscher war. Ethé verliess Aberystwyth am nächtsten Morgen, um nie wieder in sein Haus in Caradog Road oder an die Universität von Aberystwyth zuruckzukehren. Er verstarb 1917 in Bristol. Diese Gedenktafel wurde vom Stadtrat von Aberystwyth in der hoffnungerrichtet, dass niemandem in unserer Stadt jemais wieder ein solches Unrecht geschieht.
