I really hope you're wrong. The thought just scares me horribly. I realize that there will always be ignorant people who don't want to know the truth about history. The moon landing being faked and Pearl Harbor having been aided by the Americans are horrible enough, but masses of people "forgetting" that the Holocaust was real terrifies me. If schools were to start teaching all of the above conspiracy theories, that's when I leave the country. I'd rather die in a war zone than have my children be taught any of that.

Yeah. The logical derivative of this line of thought is to wonder how many genocides, how many holocausts, how many cultures have been forever blotted from history by Rome, Babylon, Shanghai, Kiev, Gaul, London, Athens, Cairo, or any of the other major empires of the past, and how many of those cultures had destroyed others? How many cities sank into the sea, or beneath hundreds of feet of soft sand? How many nations became vassals of the Aztecs, the Mayans, the Zulu, the Huns, the Mongols, and lost their entire histories before they had the written word to store it? I don't think our history will suffer the same fate, but I wonder still.

It seems to me with the amount of first person records that are out there for modern events, the truth isn't going to be forgotten. That is assuming civilization doesn't collapse, or a truly concerted effort occurs by a large fraction of people to rewrite things. In my observation, most people think the rewritings you've mentioned are out-there conspiracy theories.

In regards to classroom teaching, I remember when I took world history. The teacher mentioned the "Holocaust never happened" theory and showed us some evidence for it, but only to then show how the evidence was being skewed. Sort of an immunization against conspiracy theory.
