No it is definitely not true. Each state in the repository has an ID,
based on a hash, and 

The writer above maybe is confusing "changing history" with "creating a
completely new and recognizably different chain of history based on some
combination of other parts of the history" (git rebase). This only adds
new history, clearly identified by who did it, and it doesn't remove
what was there.  People who have the original history still have it.
Operations like this are meant to be used before the original history is
published to any other repository, since this can cause confusion.
