THE TRIAL OF HERMANN ETHÉ

Hermann Ethé was born in Prussia in 1844 and, by the time he moved to Aberystwyth in the mid-1870s, had established a reputation as one of the world's foremost Orientlist scholars. He taught languages at University College, Aberystwyth for nearly forty years, and in that time became a respected citizen of the town. Following the death of his first wife and infant daughter, Ethé married Harriet Phillips, an English woman nearly half his age. The Ethés lived happily in Aberystwyth until 1914 when, on the outbreak of the First World War, they were driven from their home by an anti-German mob. They spent the following years in exile, staying with various relatives in England. Harriet stayed with Hermann throughout, supporting him during his fight to be allowed to return home to Wales.April 17th to 19th 2015 followed by a short tour of west Wales before going to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.
