Today Frits Philips became 100 years and in honor of him Eindhoven was changed into Frits Philipsstad for the day.
Lots of events took place on several locations. I went downtown to the Markt, the square in the center.
Frits has meant a lot for the people living and working in Eindhoven, he saved a lot of jewish people during WWII
Also lots of institutes and other buildings changed their name like the Frits Philips University, The Frits Philips Stadion (PSV)
In the big tent on the Markt people got coffee for free while watching old films and documentaries about his life.
the plane he flew with as a pilot
the carroussel at the Markt
lots of flowers and balloong espailly for him
ballons everywhere with his name
