The party re-creates the past. They, (the party) "corrects" history to conform with their ideology. Winston Smith works at The Ministry of Truth. His job is to change past print/articles to conform to what the Party wants the past to be. Systematically history is constantly "corrected" so the Party looks faultless in any of its predictions or rhetoric.
