Aberdeen City Libraries will host an event looking at the life of businessman and former Hamilton Academicals owner, the late Jan Stepek.
Martin Stepek, chairman of the Scottish Family Business Association, will show and discuss his fascinating film “For There Is Hope”, which chronicles the story of his late father on Wednesday, September 12, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. The event is being held at Aberdeen Central Library, Rosemount Viaduct.
Through the words of members of his family and people who knew Jan Stepek, the film preserves the achievement and celebrates the the life of the Polish farm boy turned soldier, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
Martin Stepek said: “I look forward to showing my film about my father – a man who never forgot his Polish roots, but dedicated his life to giving back to Scotland, the country which gave him a second chance at life.”
Copies of Mr Stepek’s books will be available for sale on the night.
