As World War II was brewing in Europe, one man, Sir Nicholas Winton, worked in secret to sneak 669 children out of German-occupied Czechoslovakia to safety in England in an operation later known as the Czech Kindertransport. Winton found homes for them and arranged for their safe passage to Britain.

According to TIME, the Office of Naval Research has funded work into vascularized composite transplantation that led to a vascularized composite allograft – a face transplant – for a 37-year old Virginia man at the University of Maryland a week ago. There are some 200 U.S. veterans who might benefit from such an operation.
The piece features Union Jack flags draped across the wall and applied to the artist’s signature stencil of a child working on a sewing machine. Created in line with the royal Diamond Jubilee celebration to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 60-year reign, it’s said that the piece hopes to put spotlight on child labor issues.
