It's not guaranteed, but probable that it could happen. I mean, people are aware it happened and systematized killing STILL occurs, could you imagine if we weren't aware of its horror? I guess people say this and think that humanity needs to learn from its past mistakes in order to forge a better future. I think it's important to know about history in order to have a better future.

It doesn't guarantee it, but it does increase it's chances. "Those who don't know history will be doomed to repeat it." if the holocaust is forgotton, obviously know one will know that history, and it can happen again.

Because people will forget how bad it was and what kind of negative impact it put onto the world. If everyone forgets about it, it will slowly lose its "level of bad" and if anyone gets the idea again, it won't seem as "bad".
