This article examines two public displays of photographs from family albums as comprising a communal archive and a gallery which enable the local audience of the Arab village of Tarshiha, Israel, to take part in shaping their collective memory as well as the creation of communal historical narratives. The discussion of these projects is based on the analysis of the photographs' display and their reception by local audiences. The analysis takes place within the theoretical context of the community archive movement and collective memory.
